Holiday Adopt a Family

Holiday Adopt a Family

Make this season a little brighter for a family in need.

The United Way Adopt a Family program allows businesses, community members and organizations to provide local families with food, necessity items and gifts during the holidays. Families accepted into this program are experiencing extraordinary needs due to job loss, health issues, or other circumstances. Adopters are able to donate gifts to an assigned family based on a description of the family’s biggest needs.


To adopt a family or provide monetary support for this program, contact Patti at United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties at (319) 338-7823 or


**All families are identified and referred by United Way Partner Agencies.
