Helping Neighbors: F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Offers Adopt-A-Family Program
The F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Adopt-A-Family Program helps make the holidays merrier for island residents and workers. Through this program, donors may “adopt” an individual or family and provide gifts for the holidays, providing one of the many joys of the holiday season.
For those that have come upon challenging times, the holidays may be quite difficult. Many FISH clients live on low fixed incomes, are underemployed and/or have recently lost income due to illness, medical emergencies or other circumstances. Supporting neighbors through the Adopt-A-Family Program is a simple act of kindness that can make all the difference in the world to a family. For some, receiving a present may be the most cherished gift of all.
This program provides a wonderful team building opportunity for companies, service clubs, youth groups and more. Individuals and businesses may become an Adopt-A-Family donor by contacting Maria Espinoza at FISH, 239-472-4775. From there, the process is simple:
FISH will provide a wish list from Adopt-A-Family clients.
Donors shop for gifts; all items must be new purchases.
Donors wrap and label gifts. Label each gift individually with the participant’s gender and age. This information will be on the wish lists.
All wrapped and labeled gifts must be dropped off to the FISH Walk-In Center, located at 2430-B Periwinkle Way, by Wednesday, December 11, 2019, between 8:00 a.m and 4:00 p.m.
For more information on the Adopt-A-Family Program, please contact Maria Espinoza at the FISH Walk-In Center, 239-472-4775.
