Adopt A Family

Give The Gift of Hope!

Adoption allows you to make the holiday season a little brighter for local families in need. Discover all the ways you can support a family in need through our Adopt A Family program.

Individual Adoption

Our Adopt A Family program offers direct adoption for individuals, pairing you with a family that you will shop for this holiday season.

Online Adoption Portal 

Through our new Online Adoption Portal, you can choose from a list of local families in need to support! This easy-to-use virtual sign-up system is designed to make your participation in the Adopt A Family program easier than ever before.

Simply click through the button below to access the portal - you will be prompted to enter your contact information, your preferences for a family size, and your preferred drop-off location to bring your gifts for your family, once you have finished shopping. After you are matched with a family, a VOADV staff member will follow-up with you with more detailed information and to answer any questions you may have!

Online Gift Donation Now Available!

Because the holidays are fast approaching and due to an overwhelming outpouring of support, we have compiled a number of holiday “wish lists” from our remaining families into one, giant Amazon Wish List as a convenient, safe way for you to shop and support our Adopt A Family program, and our many other programs which assist your community throughout the year. 

Through the Amazon Wish List, you can easily shop for the exact ages or gifts that you like and have everything shipped directly to our Collingswood office with the click of a button! To view the Amazon Wish List, click here:

For tracking purposes when purchasing items from the Amazon Wish List, we kindly ask that you:

  • Include “Alexis Degan” in the shipping address
  • Forward your receipt at this e-mail address,, so that I can know to expect the items and confirm receipt.

If you would prefer to make a direct monetary donation towards the continuation of this program, you can visit:
