Over 108 children received presents from the community in December 2018! Thank you for caring. Special thanks to the Detroit Chapter of the Detroit Drifters, Bosch Automotive and their employee Charity Fundraiser & the Metro Detroit Council of Senior Citizens who especially made a difference in our children’s lives with their generous donations. Thirty-five individuals and companies filled all the wish lists received – and included lots and lots of surprises!
Thoughts of the holidays can bring wonderful memories of family, friends and giving. But often many children won’t experience the excitement of receiving gifts during the holidays. Northeast Guidance Center’s Adopt-a-Child program provides someone like YOU an opportunity to bring joy to our neediest children who receive behavioral health services at NEGC and may have serious emotional disturbances or live with a parent who has a mental impairment. We have children waiting for someone like you to make their holiday memorable!
Making Wishes Come True
Adopt-a-Child matches individuals, families and organizations with our NEGC children ages newborn to 17 years. We have many children hoping to be adopted by a caring individual or group. Wish list items often include “something you WANT, something you NEED, something to WEAR and something to READ” and a family game. You can make a difference by adopting a child or making a monetary donation (we think $75 is a generous amount). 100% of your donation goes directly to bringing joy to the children we serve.
How It Works
• Notify us that you would like to adopt a child (call, email or return the Request Form). Adopt a Child brochure 2019 ADOPT-A-CHILD INSTRUCTIONS
• Starting November 4th, you will be contacted with the wish list of the child(ren) you adopted. Then shop, wrap and return the gifts by December 6th to 20303 Kelly Road, Detroit. Gift distribution will take place at the Eli Z. Rubin Children’s Wellness Center the following week.
• Or you may make a donation and our staff will do the shopping.
