III. Holiday Giving
The holiday season can be a challenging time for struggling families. We like to help by
connecting regional companies, clubs and individuals with a family or child they can
“adopt” for the holidays.
The Center for Fathers and Families identifies families from our programs who could
use extra help around the holidays. We also enable groups and companies to ‘adopt’
children from our MASTERS after school program.
We will provide you with a basic description of your adopted child or family, including
their “wish list”. Gift certificates to grocery stores and stores such as Target or Walmart
always work well. Non-perishable food baskets and/or grocery store gift cards are
perfect. We will provide the date that items are needed to be delivered to our office at
920 Del Paso Boulevard weekdays from 9am – 4pm, or arrangements may be made for
If it is easier for you to make a monetary donation, CFF staff will take care of the
shopping for your adopted family.
CFF has a variety of volunteer opportunity in our Adult Service Program, our Youth
Services Programs and Fundraising Activities and Administration Support. If you are
interested in volunteering please let us know.
We are very interested in working with young people that are interested in intern
placement with us. We offer opportunities for learning and sharing that will be of mutual
benefit to both the intern and our organization.
To engage with us in any of the opportunities listed above, please contact Curtis
Parker, Director of Strategic Partnership by email at or
