Making an impact in the lives of families who need it most! 

Rise & Dream Foundation

The Rise & Dream Foundation is launching its annual Adopt a Family Program.  The program adopts families and children that are in financial need during the Christmas Holiday and seeks to grant them a Christmas Wishes & Needs.  We working with the counselors and community education liaisons in the school districts to identify those families that have financial hardship and could use a helping hand during the Christmas season.  

We supply the children and parents with new and gently used items... (value approx $150 per person)

  • Kids - 2-3 toys
  • 2 compete outfits (pants, shirts)
  • package of new socks
  • pair of new gym shoes
  • Jacket or blanket (if needed)
  • Parents - household items needed
  • Food Box
  • Hygiene and Cleaning Baskets

We will be looking for businesses who would like to adopt a family or put up a tree in their establishment to allow people to pick an ornament with an item on it to buy.  We accept monetary donations to go out and purchase the gifts for families as well.  We will also be collecting food, hygiene/cleaning products, and toilet paper to give to the families to make a greater impact in their overall household as well.  

All unwrapped gifts are asked to be turned in no later than Sat. Dec 15th at 5pm.  We will then prepare for our SORT & SERVE events in various cities where the families will come to pick up their items, and be served a nice meal with games and fun for the family.   

If you are interested in any of these items, please let us know and we will coordinate all the details with you.
