For over 25 years Family Service has helped give thousands of families hope for Christmas and the holidays through our Adopt-A-Family program.

February 1, 2023

Throughout the year, our direct service staff identify those families most in need and assist them in creating a wish/need list.

Through generous community support, Family Service’s Adopt-A-Family provides basic needs, household items, and gifts to families participating in Family Service programs throughout 14 counties in South Texas. This year, our Presenting Sponsor, Jefferson Bank, generously sponsored the Adopt-A-Family program, helping us combine the support of over 250 sponsors in order to adopt over 3,000 individuals! Thank you for your support and passion for helping provide a brighter holiday season for families in need.

“Organizations like Family Service are invaluable to our community, and we are proud to support the work and dedication of this organization.  Jefferson Bank is committed to help strengthen the communities we serve and if our families are thriving so is our community,” said, Estrellita Garcia-Diaz, Vice President and CRA Officer, Jefferson Bank. “The holidays can be a stressful time and especially for the most vulnerable families in our area, that is why our support of the Adopt-A-Family program was so important to us.  It ensured that Family Service had the resources necessary to help families experience the hope and joy of the season.”

Thank you to our community partners who made Adopt-A-Family  special.

Thank you to Sun Com Mobile, LLC, our newest partner and to our over 250 individuals, community, and corporate sponsors who supported 523 of our client families this holiday season. Your generosity not only provided gifts and resources to families in need, but helped build hope for the new year ahead.

“We are proud to have participated in the Adopt-A-Family Program. Being able to sponsor impacted families including all household members without exclusion was key in choosing the right partner for our organization,” said, Sunny Martinez, Regional Director, South Texas, Sun Com Mobile, LLC. “Through Family Service’s wide reach assisting a multitude of demographics across the area, we were certain our contribution would reach children persisting through the disadvantaged landscape of our inner city and that the parents, grandparents, and other household leaders who give so much to these children would not be forgotten. We are excited about this new partnership and look forward to participating and growing our contribution in the years to come.”
