Adopt-a-Family program ends with food delivery

Cathedral City High School’s 30th Annual Adopt-A-Family Program Ends With Food And Gift Distribution / Delivery

CATHEDRAL CITY – A beloved tradition of the Palm Springs Unified School District returns for its 30th year: the annual Adopt-A-Family program at Cathedral City High School.

The final of the popular program will be on Tuesday, December 14 from 10:10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Cathedral City High School, student parking, 69250 Dinah Shore Drive, Cathedral City. (Dinah Shore and Plumley.

Representatives from 20 main classes, school clubs and campus offices will bring their donated food and gifts that they have collected from the school and community over the past two weeks to the campus staging area for the truck loading and delivery to primary schools.

Each of the participating reception rooms in the secondary school was assigned to a family and was only informed of the number of children, their age and sex, and the number of parents present in the home. The students in the classes pooled their resources to collect food and gifts for their assigned families.

Each year, Cathedral City High’s five foster primary schools help identify families in need through their vast child welfare service resources.

By the end of this year’s program, the CCHS ‘Adopt a Family’ effort will have served over 1,090 families since its inception in 1991.

Deliveries will be made this year to primary schools rather than directly to beneficiary homes.
