The 2020 Adopt A Family Program has closed.

The 2020 Adopt-A-Family program has now closed in order to allow enough time to contact every familyWe apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have you as a sponsor in 2021.

As a reminder, the Adopt-A-Family program opens each year on October 1st and typically closes mid-November due to high demand.

If you would still like to help spread Christmas cheer, you are more than welcome to donate toys through the distribution that happens the week of December 14th.  If you would like more information please contact or phone the office at 713-524-2878.


The enthusiasm and support for this program continues to surpass previous years. In October, generous people from around the greater Houston area begin contacting Houston Children’s Charity to help make a less fortunate family’s holiday brighter.

HCC’s Adopt A Family program allows Houstonians the opportunity to create Christmas “MAGIC” by becoming a family “Sponsor.”  In 2019, over 400 individuals/corporate sponsors ultimately helped over 500 families in the program and made this another successful year. Thanks to their generosity, over 2,000 children were blessed with Christmas joy. The families involved with our Christmas programs were touched with a giving spirit and toys that bring those special memories that every child deserves.

Each adopting sponsor purchased toys, housewares, clothing and/or other items needed by their individual family. Many families have greater needs for their little ones than simply toys. Because of our sponsor’s giving hearts…Christmas miracles do happen!!!
