Adopt A Family 2020

Become A Sponsor Today and Make Dreams Come True!

The holiday season is upon us. For many families in Fresno, simple things like buying toiletries, warm clothing, and food become insurmountable struggles. During the holiday season, these struggles magnify when parents want to create smiles and make their children’s dreams come true.

Each year generous members of our community support families in need by “adopting” one of these families to make their Christmas a little brighter. Support can come from individuals or businesses and more than one family can be adopted. At EPU our staff will match up the size of the family to the request of the adopting sponsor.

Important Dates:

November 13th: EPU deadline to submit family applications

November 13th: Sponsorship deadline

November 16th-20th: Family and Sponsor Match
(sponsor notified no later than 11/20)

December 14th-16th: Last days for sponsors to drop off gifts

If you have any questions or would like to adopt a family, please contact
Olivia Arnold at or (559) 229-2000 Ext. 136.
