Volunteer sponsors sought for annual holiday gift-giving program

The time has come to sign up to become an Adopt-A-Family program sponsor. This year’s program will be headed up by the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base’s First Sergeant’s Council.


The Adopt-A-Family program provides holiday gifts for children up to the age of 18 for eligible families. Members assigned/employed at Wright-Patterson AFB are E-5/GS-5 and below who are in need are eligible. Others will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Final eligibility will be determined by unit first sergeants.

After each eligible family is matched with an available sponsor, each sponsor will be given an information packet with general non-identifying information for the family they “adopted.” This packet includes the age, sex and gift ideas/interests for each child sponsored.

Sponsor registration will remain available until Nov. 9. To become an Adopt-A-Family sponsor or to volunteer to organize gifts for pick-up/distribution, contact the Adopt-A-Family point of contact at 88cg.ccf.wpafb.AdoptaFamily@us.af.mil or Master Sgt. Scott Morin at scott.w.morin.mil@mail.mil or by phone at 937-522-3175.
