Adopt A Family This Holiday Season

Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center seeks donors to brighten the holiday season for children, families and seniors in the northern Arizona foothills community.

The food bank is working with more than a dozen local organizations and churches to provide gifts, holiday meals and hope for those in crisis in the community.

We are now in preparation for our 17th Annual Adopt-a-Family event! This program enables our clients to have toys or items of need for their families during the holidays. If you donate, you will be helping a family in need very directly. Give serious thought to helping. We anticipate having a record number of clients.

Individual donors as well as donor groups such as businesses, HOAs, churches, and schools, are encouraged to participate in this year’s Adopt-a-Family program. Interested donors determine the size of the family they are willing to adopt then a family wish list is provided as a shopping guide. Monetary donations also are accepted to support the program.

Please consider filling out the DONOR FORM below  and we will match your request with a family waiting to be adopted. We will then forward you their gift wish list for shopping. You may choose to give to the family directly or bring your wrapped gifts to our event center in December. If you prefer, you may also donate gift cards to places like Walmart or Target, or provide Visa gift cards that can be used anywhere.

All gifts are to be wrapped, labeled and placed into a large black trash bag with the assigned family number affixed to the outside of the bag(s).  All gifts need to be dropped off at:

  • Holland Community Center, 34250 N 60th St, Bldg B, Scottsdale 85266
  • The Gift Room will be open Monday, Dec. 9, Tuesday, Dec. 10 and Thursday Dec. 12 from 9 am-4 pm;  And on Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 9 am-7 pm.
  • All gifts are to be wrapped, labeled with an individual gift tag and placed into a large BLACK trash bag. Please affix the assigned family identifier to the outside of the bag(s) – Tags provided.

The family number will be provided to the Donor along with suggested “wish lists” from family members. You spend what you are able; your generosity will touch the lives of many that are struggling financially this season. Checks are payable to Foothills Food Bank. All gifts and donations are tax deductible according to tax laws.

We appreciate everyone’s time and participation over the coming weeks both at the food bank and in helping make this program a success to ensure smiles for families and seniors this holiday season!
