Thank you so much for being a part of our annual Christmas Adoption Program to make the holidays brighter for children and teens in our area. Without you and your generosity, these neighbors would not have basic needs met this holiday season.
Throughout the year, families are able to shop for gently used clothes, shoes and basic needs from our resale shops. For many, Christmastime is their only opportunity to receive anything NEW! Because of our amazing donors, ACO was able to distribute Christmas gifts including new winter clothing, shoes and undergarments to 580 children and teens on December 15th. These children are ready for winter, and their parents and care givers are no longer worried if their precious kids have appropriate clothes to go to school. We appreciate your support of Allen Community Outreach and the families we serve! We are grateful for the community support as our program changed to focus on the most critical needs of children – new winter clothing items!
A BIG thank you to Greenville Oaks Church of Christ for allowing ACO to use their worship center to sort and organize all the gift bags of winter clothes, and Christmas food bags.
A Big thank you to Toys for Tots of Collin County for their partnership with ACO in the collection and distribution of toys!
