You will receive a thank you card, photo of the family/families you adopted, and a tax receipt for your donation.

This is a great opportunity for groups of friends, organizations or sports teams to come together! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Sarah Kimbrough - sarah@familiesforwardlc.org or (626) 792-2687 x121 If you are ready to adopt, please fill out this form: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?ap=911805613
