Adopt-a-Family Thanksgiving Program

Support TriCity Family Services’ Adopt-a-Family Thanksgiving Program

Looking to give back to those in need this Thanksgiving season? TriCity Family Services runs an Adopt-a-Family Thanksgiving program for client families in need.

During the season of giving, we are so proud to be able to give the low-income and struggling families we serve a big helping hand, beyond the counseling and supportive services they receive from us on a regular basis. Our clinical staff offers the Adopt-a-Family program to client families who are experiencing a difficult time and are in financial need of help during the holiday season. The agency secures a corporate sponsor to donate a turkey for each family but the community and individuals provide the rest of the food for these families in need. It is truly an opportunity to support your neighbors in need at what can be a very difficult time of year.

To support the program, please donate all the holiday meal fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner. Food should not require refrigeration and should be able to sit for about a week without spoiling. In addition to the Thanksgiving meal fixings, donors often provide other pantry essentials and popular food items for households with children, and other special treats.

Last year, our Adopt-a-Family Thanksgiving Program provided a spectacular abundance of food, gift cards, hope and joy to 54 families in need, which included 110 adults and 128 children!

Baskets can be dropped off at the agency, located at 1120 Randall Court in Geneva, the week of November 18 through November 22.

If you are interested in donating gift cards or food baskets for this Thanksgiving Adopt-a-Family Program, email Mary Kay Dowling, or call 630.232.1070.

Beginning November 1 , Ginsberg Chiropractic will host its yearly “Doctor with a Heart” program.

For every new patient that enters the chiropractic clinic, Dr. Ginsberg and his staff will donate a Thanksgiving turkey to TriCity Family Services for the agency’s Adopt-a-Family Thanksgiving Program. Thank you, Dr. Ginsberg!
