Tony’s Treehouse Adopt-A-Family program will bring joy to families over the holidays

Tony’s Treehouse’s 22nd Annual Adopt-A-Family program will bring joy and good cheer to many families this holiday season and they are seeking assistance from the community.

Supporters will experience a hands-on opportunity, along with their children, co-workers, neighbors, teen club, Scout troop, soccer team…you name it. Participants will receive an individual’s or family’s story and wish list, so they can adopt someone or a family in need.

Here are two options on how you can help:*

1. Hands on: You shop, wrap and deliver to the Treehouse headquarters in Laguna (or they will gladly pick up at your location).

2. Hands off: You send the dollars to make the magic happen, and their volunteers shop, wrap and deliver the gifts.

*Average donation for a family of four is between $50 and $100 per person, whatever your budget allows.

Once you sign up, you will be given a short bio of your individual or family, their names, ages and interests. Tony’s Treehouse will coordinate with you on the timing of the gift delivery (TBA).
