How does Holiday Adopt-A-Family work?
Each summer, Bellevue LifeSpring’s Human Services team conducts registration for families in the community who foresee needing help for Christmas. Each family is interviewed in person and qualified for services. They share a little bit of their story and create a wish list for each child in their family and one household gift.
In the fall, community sponsors are matched with families in need to provide gifts for Christmas and a grocery store gift card. Download a sponsor signup form or call 425-451-1175 for more information.
The program culminates in a distribution day with an amazing team of over 150 volunteers.
In 2018, 199 community sponsors supported 282 families, including 669 children, for the holiday season. We are so grateful for your spirit of generosity.

Listen to what some past sponsors have to say about the experience of being a Holiday Adopt-A-Family sponsor:
“Living on the Eastside for almost 20 years, it was a shock to realize there were so many families in need. I feel so blessed with all that we have and if I can spend a bit of time making a difference in another family’s life, it’s well worth it.” – Elaine P.
“Holiday Adopt-A-Family is something I look forward to every year. Shopping for a family that would otherwise go without, seeing the expressions on the faces of the families when they come to pick up their gifts – both make the season a special one each year.” – Joan V.
