The Carlsbad Christmas Bureau Adopt-A-Family Project has been helping Carlsbad families enjoy the holiday season since 1970. With a mission to unite the community, and share the joy and spirit of Christmas with Carlsbad’s less fortunate children and families, the organization partners with companies, groups, schools, and caring citizens to provide the experience of Christmas to over 400 Carlsbad families in need. A 501(c)(3), volunteer-run organization, the Christmas Bureau is now seeking support of the community to get all 400 families adopted. Once participants sign up to adopt, they are then paired with and provided information about their adopted family so they can go Christmas shopping. All of the gifts for each adopted family are collected at the Christmas Bureau warehouse the first week of December. To learn more or get involved by adopting a family visit www.christmasbureau.org.
