  • Adopt-A-Family is seeking donors to help provide gifts for Delaware's children and seniors in need.
    Each holiday season, donors are anonymously matched to a senior or family of one or more children through the Holiday Adopt-A-Family program. Adopt-A-Family provides the donor with the age and gender of each child in the family and a brief description of the circumstances that led to their need for assistance. The donor then provides gift cards or certificates for the head-of-household to use in buying holiday gifts. The recommended gift is $100 to $125 per child, with a gift certificate for the parent optional but thoughtful.
    A wish list of things the individuals like, as well as clothing preferences and sizes will be provided. Items can be dropped off at the New Castle County, 3301 Green St., Claymont; Kent and Sussex County Adopt-A-Family offices, 13 SW Front St., Milford.
    The deadline to adopt a family is Dec. 19.
