There are low-income families in our community whose financial situations will not allow them to experience a joy-filled holiday season. The “Adopt-A-Family Program” provides new clothing, toys, and gifts to families in need.

Thank you to families who reached out to Palatine Township and “adopted” them for the holidays.

If you have signed up to be a Donor for Adopt-A-Family, please remember that this year we will be collecting gifts at the Township over THREE days: December 10 – 12.

The distribution will take place December 12. You should have received your family information,  and a drop-off day and time. If you are unable to deliver your gifts on this date, please let us know. However, due to the large size of the program, we appreciate your flexibility whenever possible.

We are requesting donors to provide gift cards instead of gifts for the parent/guardian. This will allow the parent/guardian to purchase much-needed items for their families such as food, clothing, and toiletries.  As in previous years, in order to maintain uniformity among the recipients, we ask that you spend approximately $50-75 on each person in the family.  Please keep this in mind when deciding how many and what size families to “adopt.”

 Please provide your information as you would like it to appear in correspondence and Adopt-A-Family records.

The date for the 2020 Adopt-A-Family Program is Saturday, December 12. ALL GIFTS NEED TO  be returned to the Township this year.

If you have additional questions please contact the Township at 847-358-6700 or email or
