The holidays are a natural time to think about others, especially those less fortunate. The New Breed Community Development Corporation is seeking individuals, businesses and organizations to help provide holiday gifts for 130 children and seniors living in poverty or in low-income households.

Each holiday season, donors are anonymously matched to a senior or family of one or more children through the Holiday Adopt-A-Family program. Adopt-A-Family provides the donor with the age and gender of each child in the family and a brief description of the circumstances that led to their need for assistance. The donor then provides gifts for the family or senior. The recommended that each family or senior receives gifts of both personal and nutritional background.

Adopt-A-Family pairs individuals who are facing difficult times with someone else in the community who is able to share and willing to give. The program cultivates the ethic of giving back and of sharing, which at its core is the strength of community.

This is a very difficult year for our Holiday Adopt-A-Family program given the growing poverty and unemployment rate in Metro Detroit. We rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses and organizations to volunteer or to donate by adopting a family or an elderly person. They provide a holiday to kids, families and the elderly who would otherwise go without.
