If you live in Tucson Arizona and need to be adopted this Christmas, the Salvation Army in Tucson AZ can help you. Each year, The Salvation Army helps families who are in crisis, enjoy a special holidays. Through the Adopt-A-Family program, groups, churches and organizations are afforded the opportunity to engage in a “hands-on” project to provide assistance to a select family of their choosing. By sponsoring a family, anyone can help make the holidays truly blessed and spread cheer to others. This year, over 100 schools are participating in family referrals, allowing the Salvation Army to not only provide more needy children a chance of assistance but ensuring the level of need. Consequently, the need for community sponsors will continue to grow and be more rewarding for all parties involved!
In Tucson, AZ, to be a sponsor of a family for the holidays, there are certain minimum guidelines to meet:
- $50 Food Certificate (from a grocery store)
- $50 Worth of New Toys Per Child
- Children 15-yrs and older receive Clothing & Hygiene Items
For example: A family of four (one adult & three kids) would receive $50 for food and $150 worth of new toys, thus costing sponsor a total of $200. Sponsors may also choose to supplement the minimum guidelines with other items/gift certificates, as well as directly deliver the items to the family.
