Adopt a Family South Hills was started in 2016, by a mom with a goal. As a past sponsor, adopting families in need during the holidays, she saw the real need in the community to keep this program alive. Now, we have more than doubled our reach in the last three years and hope to continue that growth.
Our goal is to help families, with recent difficulty in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, experience the joy of Christmas. We are working to unite all members of our local communities with a common cause. This year we are incorporating a second mission with the Easter holiday.
In 2017, we were able to help 51 families. This included over 148 children from 3 months to 22 years old. In 2018, we topped 200 children from 80 families in need. Families were provided with gifts for each member of the family as well as gift cards to various grocery stores, restaurants, and family activities.
