Adopt-A-Family Program

Grant Funding provided by the Children’s Hospital Foundation

This year, in light of the current pandemic, we are only accepting donations in the form of gift cards to help families celebrate together, safely. We understand that the act of shopping for specific gifts is special to you, however, hope that you understand this year’s solution to keep your family and our hospital families as safe as possible. We will be accepting gift cards only and will divide them among children and families from the Children’s Hospital of Michigan who are in need.

We humbly suggest gift cards to the listed below the submit button in denominations of $15-$50 (you may donate as few or as many gift cards as you’d like/are able) that will be allocated to families based on family size and need. Families who have applied to the program have identified which stores they have access to and enjoy.
