Helping Neighbors: F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Sponsors Adopt-A-Family Program!
The F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Adopt-a-Family program provides the opportunity for FISH client families to experience the many joys of the holiday season that they otherwise may not be able to afford. Adopt-A-Family was started years ago to help make the holidays merrier for the families FISH serves. Through this program, donors may “adopt” an individual or family and provide gifts for the holidays. Many of the participants FISH serves live on very low fixed incomes, are underemployed and/or have recently lost their income due to the Red Tide/Green Algae disaster. For many, these will be the only gifts they receive at the holidays.
FISH is asking local individuals and businesses to become an Adopt-A-Family donor this year to insure our neighbors will be able to create their own special holiday memories this year. Would you like to be a donor for the Adopt-A-Family Program? If so, here’s what you need to do:
Sign up to become an Adopt-A-Family donor by contacting Maria Espinoza at FISH, 239-472-4775. You may sign up as an individual or a group. This is a great team building opportunity for companies and organizations.
FISH will provide a wish list from our client families.
