The Newark Branch NAACP has adopted a family for the holiday season for more than a decade. Adopt-A-Family has helped Delaware families in need since 1973 and is coordinated by the Division of State Service Centers in all three counties. The Adopt-A-Family program aids families in crisis – those struggling with illness, homelessness, domestic violence, poverty or unemployment.
Our family this year consists of a single mother with four children (boys age 5 and 7, and girls age 8 and 15) who are in a domestic violence shelter. The Newark Branch NAACP will be buying gift cards for the mother and her children at Target and WalMart.
Your financial contributions are needed to help make the holidays special for this family in need. Your donations will be matched by the Branch to make our dollars go even further.
Checks can be made out to Newark Branch NAACP and mailed to P.O. Box 477
Newark DE 19715 by December 11, 2015. If you prefer to mail a gift card to Target or Walmart, please write the amount of the gift card on the front of the card.
