Please Register by December 2, 2015 to provide gifts and support for a family in need.

Christmas should be a joyous time, but many low-income families struggle on a limited budget to purchase essentials like food and rent. Providing gifts for their children may not be an option.

Catholic Charities matches compassionate donors with families in need.

To adopt a family in the:

  • Denver Metro area:  Please complete the form below.
  • Fort Collins / Larimer Region:  Please call 970.484.5010
  • Glenwood Springs / Western Slope Region:  Please call 970.384.2060

When will we be matched?

Matching begins the first week of November with the goal of completing most, if not all, matches by Thanksgiving.

How will we know what to buy?

Client families work with Catholic Charities (CC) staff to develop a list of basic needs and some “wishes” for each family member. Donors receive this list when a match is made.

We don’t have a lot of money. How much does it cost to adopt a family?

Donors may request the size family they wish to adopt. There is no spending requirement, nor are donors expected to purchase all items on the wish list if this is not possible.

Do we meet the family/deliver gifts in person?

To respect the privacy of both donors and CC clients, gifts are dropped off at the main office and then delivered to families by CC staff.

Who wraps the gifts?

Donors are requested to bring UNWRAPPED gifts but to supply wrapping paper and ribbon/bows so that parents can wrap the gifts for their children.
