Workplace Adopt-A-Family?

My workplace is looking for a family in need in NJ. Last year we did the Adopt-a-Family, which worked out very well. Last year I actually knew of a particular family. This year I do not, but I would like to keep the program going. Any suggestions?

My significant other and I have 2 and a half year old little girl named Ryleigh. Ryleigh also has a half sister, Leila 6, who we get every other weekend and this Christmas is our year for her to spend with us. I have been looking for charities in our area to help us provide a few gifts for our daughters, so far we only found one who will give each girl one toy. Financially we just barley have enough for monthly bills let a loan Christmas.

Any help would be more then appreciated. My name is Sharon, Lamar is their father and we live in the city of Camden. Lamar is a manager of a shoe store but it doesn't allow for even a few gifts for our girls. If you know of any assistance please email me at sharonaspics AT

Sharon, would be happy to help you and your girls have a happier Christmas. I could either send you a few gifts or give you a gift card to Target and you can shop for them yourself.


Let me know what works for you

Hi I'm very confused on how to post my own questions or story. Could you maybe direct me in the right direction on how I can seek any help for my own family this Christmas season? I have 4 amazing children that are my world. I have twin boys that are 6 and even with my one twin becoming deaf after contracting meningitis from an unvaccinated child he is still such a fighter... my 3yr old son is the sweetest little mush ever... if he sees me cry he kisses both my cheeks n says "it's ok mommy, I love you to bits", and my baby girl Emma grace is 1 and just a non stop energy ball, lol.


I just would like to make their Christmas what they deserve after they had a tough year and still have a great spirit to them!! If I can in any way find help to give them a more cheerful Christmas I will do it.. they deserve the world and unfortunately after this very very hard year that is not an easy task. If you could even help me find out how to navigate this site I'd appreciate it. Thank you again. Heather . You can call,text or email anytime.. (609)994-1609

Hello, I read that you are looking to adopt a family, I am a single mother of a beautiful little girl. she is seven years old. She does not a father. we do not have much of a family. We have each other my mother, she has a step sister that just lost her mother to cancer two days before Halloween. We are going through alot right now, we are facing losing our home we rent because ur landlord wants to move in which we heard is legal so we could be told to leave. We just had to pay 1,000 to get our van out of repo so my daughter can get to her doctor appointments. She is a severe asthmatic and I am currently out of work. I just would like her to be happy for Christmas considering she knows alot that is going on, kids are so smart these days. Thanks for your time. K.V.

Hi, I'm a single mother of 3 and looking for help this christmas.

I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. My 2 oldest are on their own and have their own families. My son just turned 18 and will be joining the Marines after he graduates. I work but only make enough money to barely cover rent and utilities. This will be my last Christmas with him for quite awhile. I want to be able to give him and my grandchildren a Christmas They deserve. My son deserves to have his last Christmas at home to be unforgettable. He has made the selfless decision to protect our country and I am so very proud of him and want to make his last Christmas at home unforgettable but unfortunately I can't without help.

Hi there if you are still looking for a family I would like to put our name on the list .. I feel so cheesy and shamfull to even ask .. I have 3 boys at home, 3 amazing smart caring boys .we lost our daughter last July and I haven't been able to return to work because of the PTSD . I have been so busy trying to budget keeping us afloat on one income , which since September we haven't had any as dad was layed off . I haven't even been able to put our daughter in a proper urn we have been so tight on money with our youngest son who has severe milk soy and protien allergies money is stretched too far and Christmas morning will be w no present as I have waited until the last minute and there are simpley no churches or groups taking names this late I've called them all. Thank you and God bless . and Merry CHRIST-mas

Hi, I am very humbled to ask for help. I was placed on disability awhile ago. The money I receive is barely enough to pay the bills. I have recently been given custody of my 2 year old grand daughter. I don't think there is going to be enough extra to have Santa stop at our house. I would be so very grateful to have something under the tree for her on Christmas morning.

I have 3 children, 2 boys 14yrs and 2 years and 1 daughter 12 yrs. I became disabled in 2016. I am single and really struggling on long term disability. After paying the bills to have shelter and utilities, there is no money left for anything. I have exhausted my savings and this will be the 1st year that I will be unable to buy anything for them for Christmas. Any help would be humbly appreciated.

My son passed away on July 28th leaving his little girl who will have her 2nd birthday on Dec 15th. Her Mom has to take care of her now and is working two jobs, anything for Christmas would be a big help to us. She is so missing her Daddy who was such a great person who loved her very much. He loved Holidays and he loved that little girl she always made him smile. Sincerely Alice LaRocca
