Holiday Adopt-A-Family program

With your generous donations, Vista del Camino and Concerned Citizens for Community Health help up to 500 families in need have a brighter holiday season each year through our Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program. This Holiday program wouldn't be possible without the generous support of the community.

Sponsors are matched with families, seniors and disabled adults who otherwise have little hope for a happy holiday season.
 
You can make a difference! Please consider sponsoring a family for the Holidays. You may also donate items needed to complete Thanksgiving food boxes and Holiday gifts.

For more information about the Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program, please see our brochure.

Scottsdale Healthcare partners with the city to provide the supplies, plus information on the dangers of extreme heat. The public can donate water or other items, including light-colored T-shirts, sunblock, socks and underwear, hats and pre-packaged snack items.

The Hydration Station is part of a regional "Heat Relief Network" program links to external site
