Salvation Army and Bob Wallin Insurance

2021 Adopt A Family

SUCCESS!!!!!

Thank you to all who donated gifts and gift cards for our annual Adopt A Family through the salvation army!  The Salvation Army representative was extremely grateful for the generosity and even teared up a little as we dropped it off.

She was able to share a little bit more about the family we adopted… Our family, a mother of three boys, is recently widowed.  Her late husband was a veteran as well.  Her kids ages 11, 6 and 2 will enjoy some amazing gifts.  Your generosity helped lift some of the burdens they are facing and will be able to celebrate the holiday season by being with each other and sharing in some cheer, thanks to you.

Giving back to our community and partnering with our clients to bring a local family some holiday cheer and supporting those in need is important to us.  Thank you for making this community outreach a success!

Wishing you all peace and warmth this holiday season!

2021 Adopt A Family

View the Christmas List & Sign-Up HERE

Thank you for joining us again for our annual Adopt a Family!! This year we have adopted a single mother with 3 kids; 2yr old boy, 6yr old boy, and 11yr old boy! Items are due in our office by Wednesday 12/8/2021.

Giving truly is the greatest gift of all, and that is the gift the Salvation Army gives to the parents of up to 500 local low-income families every year. In early fall they take applications for gift assistance, where families give them a wish list for their children. After the applications are complete they take those gift requests and put them on tags which we hang on our Giving Trees set up in various businesses throughout the county. Patrons of these businesses then take these tags and buy whatever is requested on the tag, then return the gift to them so that we can distribute the gifts to the parents in December.

Not all families are assisted in this manner. During the application process they interview each family, and when they find a family that is suffering excessive hardship they will recommend them for Adoption. Families recommended for Adoption are sponsored by local businesses, agencies, and private benefactors who pay for all of the gifts received by the family.

This year is the family’s first year getting assistance from The Salvation Army. It was just harder this year than usual and they are really struggling with household items. Many of their “want” items are basic needs.

Thank you for joining us in bringing a little extra joy to this family on Christmas!
