Winter is right around the corner, and December holidays are approaching!

MFCC is partnering with the United Church of Milton, Cornerstone Community Church, New Life Christian Church and many other organizations and like-minded helpers to run an “Adopt-a-Family” style Holiday Assistance program, connecting families in need with gifts for their children. Last year we were able to make sure that 233 children from 93 families had gifts to open, and we expect to meet or exceed that number in 2023.

To help by “Adopting-a-Family”:

Thank you so much for wanting to make a child’s holiday a little brighter this year.

First step: Fill out this form

From there, the MFCC team will match you with a family. You will be sent the anonymous family number that we’ve assigned to the family, in addition to information on the children (i.e. ages, wish list, favorite colors, clothing size, etc.). You will not be given any other identifying information.

The number of gifts and monetary value you buy per child is up to you. We just ask that if your family have multiple children the gifts are “even”.

Bring your unwrapped gifts to the United Church of Milton (51 Main St., Milton, VT 05468). Make sure that your unwrapped gift(s) are clearly marked with family number and child number.

To Receive Assistance:

Anxious about the upcoming holidays? We might be able to help!

This is for any child(ren) in your household 18-years and younger. Come to MFCC, or sign up here, between Wednesday, November 1st and Friday, December 1st, 2023.

We will match your family with an “Adopter” who will shop for and donate gifts for your child(ren). Adopters will receive information on the children’s ages, favorite colors, and wants. They will not be given any other identifying information, so it will remain anonymous.

Your unwrapped presents will be available to be picked up on Saturday, December 16, 2023, between 10am-3pm, at the United Church of Milton (51 Main St., Milton, VT, 05468).
