UMBA Adopt a Family

What is UMBA Adopt a Family?

Adopt a Family is a program where UMBA raise funds for families in the local area who have a real need for a lending hand to make the holiday season joyful.  These families may have had a severe hardship throughout the year such as job loss, abuse, property destruction, health, family loss, homelessness or any other hardship. 

How many families do you 'adopt'?

In 2022 UMBA have selected two families from the local area to support over the holiday period. 

How does it work?
  • Once the families have been selected and verified, the families make out their holiday list for their family members. 

  • These lists are then put onto the Amazon shopping list that UMBA volunteers create from the family requests.

  • The community and UMBA can then purchase these items and they are shipped to UMBA in Washington Crossing to collate.

  • UMBA Volunteers then deliver the items prior to the holidays.

  • UMBA also provides a holiday meal to the family.
