The Adopt-a-Family Program at YES provides welcome economic relief to local families by bringing community members together to meet needs during the holidays. Last year, generous donors brought much-needed warmth and light to the holiday season for over 80 families – the largest number we’ve assisted in over five years!
Become an Adopt-A-Family Sponsor
As an Adopt-A-Family sponsor, you will be matched with an individual YES client or family in need, and commit to giving the following:
- $50 in gift cards for each child in the family (families will then shop for what they want/need)
- $50 gift cards for the family to purchase food or a needed household item
(Recommended gift cards are Fred Meyer/QFC, Safeway, Wal-Mart, Target or Toys-R-Us)
You may sponsor one family or several families, and you may designate how many children in a family you wish to sponsor. If you are not able to sponsor an entire family, you may still help by donating a gift card to be combined with other cards for a family.
To help a family, please complete a Sponsorship Commitment form by Friday, November 12.
Gift cards should be dropped off or mailed to YES’ Bellevue location by Friday, Dec. 16.
