Making the holidays brighter for families and Seniors in need

Leading up to the holidays, Community Center 55 hosts an “Adopt a Family” and “Adopt a Senior” Program to connect families/seniors unable to afford gifts and/or a holiday dinner with community donors. Every year, the Adam Beck School Council adopts at least one family and one senior in hopes of making their holiday season a little brighter. We ask our community to support this initiative by donating much needed gift cards.

What and how to give

Supporting our community in this way is made possible through the generosity of our Adam Beck community. If you are able to give, we kindly ask for gift card donations to help with the purchase of groceries, toys and other necessities over the holiday season. After being matched with a family/senior, we will update our SignUp page with our gift card wish list (see below for more information) so you can indicate which gift card(s) we can expect from you.Gift cards can be purchased at any retailer, through FlipGive (more info here) or any eGift Card retailer and sent to [email protected]). Purchased gift cards can be dropped off at specified locations (updated annually).

Our heartfelt thanks for your generous support for helping families in our community have a happy holiday!
