You can help bring joy and surprise to a child or family in need this holiday season by joining the Homeless Prevention Council of the Lower/Outer Cape in their Adopt-A-Family program.

Every holiday season since 1993, HPC selects children and families who are most in need. Last year, 350 children in 155 families experienced a warm and happy holiday because of help from generous donors.

HPC invites you to participate in Adopt-A-Family in 2010. The type and amount of your
gift is up to you… needed clothing, toys, or one gift especially requested by your adoptee.
Your gift is anonymous but you can be assured that it will help to make someone’s holiday
celebration very special.

If you cannot find time to shop but want to participate, send a check to the HPC Adopt-A-Family Program, P.O. Box 828, Orleans, MA 02653 and our volunteers will do the shopping for you!

Local businesses, individuals, families and groups of children have become part of this annual holiday giving. Please join them in this very personal gift-giving program that assures HPC families a happy holiday!

Contact Maureen Linehan, the Adopt-A-Family Coordinator, at 508-255-9667 x 13 or email [email protected] to learn more about how to share your holiday spirit with deserving families.
