Help a local family enjoy the holiday season!

*ALL OF OUR FAMILIES HAVE BEEN MATCHED FOR Christmas 2019!! We are overwhelmed by your support! Check back next November to help with Christmas 2020!*

When students are accepted into The Grooming Project, they are supporting their children on less than $1,000 a month (and often much less).

For the six months they are in our training program, they live on $150 a week, making the Christmas season a particularly difficult one to manage.

We hope you will help ease this burden by adopting one of our families. You can select the size of family you wish to adopt, and we will give you their information by the week of Thanksgiving. Staff and volunteers at The Grooming Project are happy to do the shopping for you if you would rather make a cash donation.

The average amount spent on each member of an adopted family is around $100, but there are no limits. We ask that the presents for children be dropped off unwrapped. This year we are asking that the presents for the mother be wrapped prior to drop off. Exact details and dates will be sent to you when you receive your family’s information. If you have any questions prior to signing up, please email Abby at abby@epeckc.org. Thank you so much for your interest!
