AANF helping families on most joyous season of them all.

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.


Suggested Donation List

Not all families list all their needs on their wish lists.  We ask donors to please step back and see what they would want and need if they were in the same situation.


Important Dates to Remember

The month 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 University United Methodist Church.



It’s the small things we take for granted that are so important to those we serve…. Can you give today?

We wake up in the morning and follow our routine; brush our teeth, take a shower, shave, brush our hair and continue the day without giving it a second thought.  Did you know there are families that would not be able to do the same without your help.

The needs of the families we serve are year round and can change in an instant.  The items listed below are a snapshot of what the families we serve ask for:

  • Sheets
  • Comforters
  • Pillows
  • Towels
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Hair Gel
  • Detergent
  • Hygiene Items
