Rochester, NY… Adopt-a-Family is now Share the Joy! Same program, same joy, new name!

Once again, a spirit of kindness comes to Rochester, bringing holiday good wishes to those who need is the most. This year, donors can support families who otherwise would not have a holiday through Catholic Family Center's Share the Joy program. We hope you will join us once again to help us make the holidays brighter for all of our clients!

In 2020, over 250 donors and dozens of schools and companies made dreams come true for nearly 1,000 people in our city. Clothing, Bikes, Books, Balls and Barbies were assembled one family at a time, and by the van load, for many families and individuals in need. Countless others gave Single Gifts of Joy through our Amazon wish list. It was an amazing outpouring of generosity by our Rochester community.

Answering a need that many of us are not aware of, special donations of food cards to help hungry kids and families create a special holiday meal together is also made possible through this program. And the popular “Gifts for Francis Friends” brings a little cheer to the men who will be residing in our homeless shelters during the holidays.

Join us once again and make the holidays very merry for some of our most vulnerable families, including hundreds of children, who would welcome the spirit of good cheer and hope through your generosity.
