The Adopt-A-Family Program is designed to help those that are in the most critical need this holiday season and is coordinated by CCM. The program pairs referred clients/families with groups or individuals who have volunteered to “Adopt” a family for Christmas. Referrals come from school counselors and local agencies. Family adoptions are not guaranteed and are based on the amount of individuals willing to participate in this program. CCM does not take self-referrals. Individuals must submit an application through their school counselor or local helping agency and is especially for families not receiving help from any other source.
The deadline to adopt a family is December 15th.
Senior Care & Share Shoeboxes
Many seniors live on fixed incomes and find themselves very much alone. A Senior Care & Share Shoebox or Bag spreads holiday cheer to someone who may not have much to look forward to this time of the year. Simply get a shoebox, or gift bag and fill it with any of the items listed below… include a card or personal note, if you’d like. Bring the shoebox or bag to Lorie Williams at the Crisis Center, 246 Country Club Dr., NE, Concord, NC. We will be sure that a senior in need receives your box of cheer! Our drop-off hours are Monday – Friday 10am to 1pm or by appointment. Please label your shoebox or bag with M for male or F for female.
The deadline to receive the shoeboxes is Monday, December 6th.
