Adopt a Family 2016

Once again it is time to prepare for our annual Adopt a Family drive. 

Our Adopt a Family program is celebrating its 13th year!  Since 2003 the employees of SUNY Orange have been adopting less fortunate families for the holiday season. In the past TWELVE years we have adopted a combined total of over 731 families, or 2,646 individuals!  This year’s campaign hopes to continue bringing joy and hope to those less fortunate.

Adoptions happen in many forms. Departments, clubs and individuals band together to adopt one or multiple families; individuals adopt families on their own; and others use this as a family opportunity. 

 In addition to the gifts, we try to raise money to purchase Shoprite grocery gift cards for each family.  Our goal continues to be $50 for each family adopted.  

If you are interested in adopting a family, and/or contributing towards the grocery gift cards, please complete the Adoption form no later than Oct. 14. This form will automatically notify us of your adoption.

If you are interested in just donating toward the gift card campaign, please complete the Adoption Form and forward your check payable to OCCC Association HR no later than December 8th. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE YOUR OWN GIFT CARD, BY BUYING IN BULK WE ARE ABLE TO PURCHASE MORE FOR LESS!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the committee members.
