ACO Christmas Adoption Program

Thank you so much for being a part of our annual program to make the holidays brighter for children and teens in our area. Because of our caring donors, a total of 575 children and teens have been matched, and they will have their basic needs met this holiday season!

All the children have been matched at this time but if you would like to still participate in giving, we are collecting gloves, hats, scarves, undergarments, socks, etc., You can drop off items at the location below. Or you could participate in our partnership with Toys for Tots below.

A gift bag with a label was provided to each donor, along with all of the details for drop off. ACO’s goal to have as many as possible adoptions made before Black Friday came to fruition thanks to our amazing community supporters!!

One very important note:
You will have ONE DAY ONLY to drop off your gift bags:

MONDAY, DECEMBER 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 


The drop off location has changed from the past to the program host church:
703 S. Greenville Ave., Allen


We appreciate your support of Allen Community Outreach and the families we serve. Throughout the year, families are able to shop for gently used clothes, shoes and basic needs from our resale shops. For many, Christmas time is their only opportunity to receive anything NEW!  Thank you for working with us as our program changes to focus on the most critical needs of children – new clothing items!

If you have any questions about adoptions, please contact Jayme Gowins, Outreach Specialist at 

For volunteer opportunities, contact Janis Christie, Volunteer Director at

NEW this year, is a partnership that ACO has developed with the newly formed Collin County TOYS FOR TOTS.
Toys for Tots will be the main distributor of toys in our community, allowing ACO to concentrate on providing families in need with the vital, basic services, including: food and clothing for children ages 0-18 during the holidays. 

You may still drop off new, unwrapped toys at all Allen Fire Stations from November 24 through December 10.
