Each year, The Retreat’s Adopt-A-Family program provides holiday gifts and gift cards for more than 120 families in crisis, totaling more than 350 individuals.  When you support this program, you are making a family’s holiday brighter.

This holiday season, we are offering multiple ways to help.


The Retreat will purchase items most needed by our clients. This includes clothing, household items, and gift cards for grocery stores and gas stations. We can buy in bulk, wholesale, and tax-exempt.


All of our families have currently been adopted. Additional families will come in before the end of the year. If you would like to be notified of new families, please email Vanessa Petruccelli. You can also view our Wish List if you would like to donate individual items that will be used for any family in need throughout the year.


There are certain items that are always needed for our clients. You can donate items personally or hold a supply drive with your business, church, or community group. View our Wish List or browse items on our Amazon Wish List.


If you are purchasing items for Adopt-A-Family, our Wish List, or your own holiday shopping list, please use The Retreat’s Amazon Smile profile. We receive a percentage of all purchases made through this profile. Search for us under Retreat, Inc. or with tax id #11-2862256.
