December brings much joy to many families in San Antonio.
Volunteers gather from different schools and organizations to gift wrap the gifts that have been graciously given to the families by our partners. The gift wrapping will be held at St. Gregory the Great Catholic School on Dec 9 from 9am to 12pm.
The families served by Adopt A Needy Family are in need of the most basic necessities, such as bedding, detergent, hygiene products and clothing. Since the program takes part during Christmas, volunteers buy toys for the children and gifts for parents since they would not be able to afford them.
What is unique about Adopt A Needy Family, is that this program assists the entire family.

Every year we kick the Adopt A Needy Family Christmas Program at Don Pedro’s Mexican Restaurant. If you are a social worker, or work at an organization that can refer families to Adopt A Needy Family, please email us at email@example.com to RSVP.
Thank you everyone who helps us help those in need.
For over fifteen years Adopt A Needy Family has been assisting families year round with programs such as utility supplements and back-to-school projects but our main focus is helping needy families during the Christmas season. Every year we look to partners like you who give of themselves to help others.
In honor of our founder Fr. James Hubert’s life work we look forward to assisting families in the poorest and neediest neighborhoods of San Antonio. This season, we invite you to consider supporting our efforts through the adoption of a family for Christmas, or through a monetary gift that we will use to purchase gifts for needy families you sponsor. Without Adopt A Needy Family, these families most likely not be able to celebrate Christmas, the most joyous season of them all.
Families in need are identified through social workers and counselors in schools and churches and other nonprofit agencies. AANF staff personally visits the homes to confirm they meet our economic requirements. We also insure that families are not duplicating services with other organizations.
Please consider joining us again in spreading the spirit of Christmas to those families who are less fortunate. We look forward to your participation in this year’s efforts and encourage you to join us at our gift-wrapping event at St. Anthony Catholic High School or Program in December.
