The Albany County Department for Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) needs more donors for the annual Adopt-A-Family program.
“Each year the Albany County Adopt-A-Family program gives hundreds of families a happy holiday season,” said County Executive Mike Breslin in a statement. “This year we hope to help even more families, but in order to achieve our goals, we need the help of the community.”
The Adopt-A-Family program connects individuals, groups or organizations to a family in need during the holiday season. Donors are provided details about the family including the ages and interests of the children and appropriate gifts according to the needs of the family.
Many families are in need of basic items, such as blankets, winter coats and sheets. For those who cannot take on a whole family, DCYF is accepting new, unwrapped gifts or monetary donations to help brighten the season for a child or family.
