photoDuring the Christmas Holiday Season, Lutheran Community Services coordinates an “adopt a family” giving program in which our most needy refugee families are matched with individuals, groups, churches or businesses that are willing to provide gifts in new or good condition. LCS gives sponsors information regarding the family members’ names, genders, sizes and most needed or desired items. These are typically household items, clothes and toys.

You may deliver gifts directly to the family to share in their excitement, or drop them at the agency. Either way, holiday gifts are a wonderful way to show refugee families that they are welcome and embraced by their new community. The holiday season is a special time for our agency as the refugee families we serve are uniquely vulnerable, and your generous gift donations provide such a welcome infusion of joy and hope.

If you are interested in adopting a family for the holidays or have questions regarding this program,
please contact Stefani Bloch at 503-731-9525 or by e-mail.
