Have you ever wanted to make a difference in a child’s life?

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Family Mentor Foundation to Adopt a Child in your community!

Through this program, organizations, companies, and community groups commit to feed a set number of children throughout the school year (36 weeks). This partnership enables us to guarantee consistent weekend Buddy Boxes are distributed to the children in our community who are food insecure when they leave school on Friday. Your commitment to help us meet the unmet needs of kids in our community is truly amazing!

Participation in this program consists of the following:

  • Partners agree to support a select number of children throughout the 2019-2020 school year (36 weeks) by donating one-time or monthly to cover the costs of the Buddy Boxes.

  • Adopting a child and providing nutritious food for the weekend costs $150 per child for the school year.

  • Partnering groups are welcome at our facility at an agreed upon time to pack the Buddy Boxes being distributed to their adopted children.

  • Adopt a Child partners will receive quarterly recognition on Family Mentor Foundation’s social media outlets, as well as an annual spotlight in our newsletter.

  • A year end impact report will be provided at the end of the school year outlining your contributions and the impact you had for the children adopted by your organization. View our most recent impact report here.

  • Partnering organizations are invited to visit one of the schools receiving Buddy Boxes and to speak with the staff about the impact of our program on participating children both at school and at home.

If you are interested in being an Adopt A Child partner or would like more information, please email us at info@familymentorfoundation.org.
