Your chance is here to “Make a Difference” to a Family in the Okanagan!Be An Angel Red

The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs “Adopt-A-Family Over the Holidays” program matches families and young people with businesses, organizations, schools, service groups and individuals. Our families/youth are current members of the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs and are identified as needing support at this time of year.

Although many families quietly try to manage to make ends meet throughout the course of the year many are not able to. Christmas is a particularly difficult time for those families and young people.

Over the past 10 years, sponsors have assembled food and gift hampers for families, who due to a variety of circumstances were unable to give their family the food and gifts they would like to ensure their families experienced the joy of the season like others around them.

Last year we had over 80 families in the Okanagan who were in need of our support and we anticipate needing to match as many families this year.

The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs Adopt a Family Over the Holidays" sponsors are encouraged to take on the responsibility of providing Christmas breakfast, lunch and dinner and gifts for the family they are matched with.

We hope you will consider “Adopting a Family” and help make a family in our community have a little brighter holiday. Thank you for bringing joy in a time of need.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
