Adopt A Family Drive 2021

Thank you for your interest in this year's Adopt-A-Family. Registration is now complete.

New Reach needs your support throughout the year. We are always in need of gift cards in $25 to $50 increments for families to purchase diapers, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and clothing from major retailers like Target and Walmart. Please email to find out more about donating gift cards. Every donation to New Reach makes a difference to the over 3,900 women and children we serve each year. Make a difference today at


It is hard to believe it is that time of year again, but New Reach is hard at work planning our 17th Annual Adopt-A-Family drive for the 2021 holiday season and we need your help!
For over fifteen years, the New Reach community has come together to provide holiday gifts for the clients we serve. In 2020, members of the community generously donated gifts for over 300 families and adults, including over 500 children, who were receiving New Reach services during the holidays. 
Here is how you can help us bring some holiday cheer to those who need it the most this year:

  • Adopt a household and purchase gifts for the family
  • Adopt an individual to make their holiday brighter
  • Adopt a family with teens who are asking for gift cards—a gift card gives a teen the ability to go to the store with their friends or purchase an item of clothing that is their style
  • Recruit your family, friends, or colleagues to join you in adopting a household
  • Donate gift cards from local retail and grocery stores, or Uber gift cards for   transportation

Holiday gifts are requested to be hand-delivered unwrapped to:
New Reach Office - 269 Peck Street, New Haven
Monday, December 6th thru Friday, December 10th between 9am-4:30pm

With your help, all New Reach clients (children and adults!) can enjoy a special and memorable holiday season this year!
