"...at the heart of helping."

How Does It Work?

The Volunteer Center’s Adopt-A-Family program connects families in need with donors from the community who “adopt” the family during the holiday season. Families are treated to gifts and food through the generosity of adopters. Adopters can specify any size family/families and are given ‘wish lists’ to help with shopping. Donors can also meet the family if they so desire. It’s a ‘feel good’ experience for both parties!

How Can You Help?

  • Adopt a Family: If you would like to adopt a family in need please fill out this Adopt-A-Family Form. We will match you with an agency, and they will contact you directly. For any additional information call Melissa McCormick at 310-212-5009 or email her at mmccormick.volcenter@gmail.com.
  • Donate: If you would prefer, please donate to the program by sending a financial contribution to: Adopt-A-Family, 1230 Cravens Ave, Torrance, CA 90501.
