What is Adopt-A-Family?

Adopt-A-Family is a great opportunity to shop for a local family in need of assistance for their Thanksgiving meal. We work in conjunction with the Sister Isaac Center at the Basilica Shrine of St. Mary's, located in downtown Wilmington. This center provides food, clothing, household items, and financial assistance to community members and families. Individuals, organizations, offices, departments, or family sponsorships are welcome.

Want to donate this year? As a sponsor, you will buy groceries to provide a holiday meal for your family – the groceries will then need to be placed in a Rubbermaid bin or container with a lid (this helps to make transporting the baskets easy. Providing a meal for a family is a $40-60 commitment. Click the link below for more information and to sign up! 

Unfortunately, Adopt-A-Family is full! Thank you to those who registered, we've hit records this year on the number of registrations for this program. Thank you!
