Several departments have
adopted a deserving family for the holidays and will be providing
the family with toys and gifts so that they too can have
a joyous holiday.
Penn VIPS--Adopt A Family for the Holidays Program
During the holidays in December,
departments from across the University "adopt" a deserving
adoption is usually done in lieu of departmental gift exchanges.
The assigned family is treated
to presents and sometimes holiday dinner. Families participate
in the program on a one-time basis.
Families are assigned to departments
based on request. Departments choose the size of the family
they would like to adopt. Departments can also request the
ages of the children they are interested in adopting. Departments
may request a "wish list" from
the family or they may choose their own gifts for the family
members. Departments choose the number and types of gifts they
will provide. Departments are provided with the size
of the family, names, ages and sizes of each family member.
Departments are encouraged to deliver gifts to the families,
but they may also request to have gifts delivered.
are selected from the Carroll Park Community Council's Housing
Program. A small number of
referrals are also accepted. Selection of families began in
November and assignments are made during and prior to mid-December.
