If you were one of the 900 Families that Adopt a Family provided Christmas Presents for your Children, we were glad to help! The Thank You Notes we received were heartfelt, and appreciated. The people in your Community enjoy hearing how happy your children were on Christmas morning.

Woonsocket Adopt-AFamily is a privately funded and 100% volunteer-based program that offers Christmas gifts to WOONSOCKET Families meeting financial and residential guidelines. These guidelines include legal residency of the City of Woonsocket, for Families with children, aged 0-12 years.
