Vista del Camino

Please remember that Monday, November 3rd, is the deadline for participating in the Vista del Camino Adopt-a-Family program.  

We have 21 children adopted so far, only about a third of our normal participation.  Signup can be done at the Leader meetings on Monday or by email to me.  Thank you SOOOO much for those of you participating; we're helping to provide a holiday to children that would otherwise go without.

Below is the information about the program:  

Adopt-a-Family Program
Vista del Camino, Scottsdale Services
Vista del Camino Social Services provides food, clothing, and emergency assistance to Scottsdale residents in need.  Many members of our community need the support of others to provide their children with a special holiday.  Each year over 400 families are helped for Thanksgiving and 550 for Christmas.
The Christmas Program emphasizes the need of children.  Vista staff provides adopters with a brief biography about the family, including gift suggestions and sizes for the children.  You are asked to provide 3 gifts chosen from the ‘wish list’ provided by each child (total child adoption costs $100.)  Please consider also donating a $25 grocery gift card for the Christmas dinner.  If you wish to provide more for the holiday meal, please do so in the form of additional grocery gift cards (rather than one larger one.)  In addition to Christmas, Vista will also honor other holiday traditions such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Ramadan.
I will email adopted family information as soon as I receive our assignments.
Thank you on behalf of 100’s of families in need in Scottsdale!
We’re making the world a better place.
