RepairClinic.com.com adopts five families in need, and donates food and household goods to Hope Clinic.Canton, MI—December 15, 2010 - RepairClinic.com's Outreach program has once again partnered with Hope Clinic, a local non-profit organization that offers aid to those in need, to provide families this holiday season with food, household goods, toys, and clothing.
Outreach adopted five families through Hope Clinic this year to help them celebrate Christmas. Outreach purchased new clothing, winter coats, shoes, bedding, toys, and pots and pans. Each member of each of the five families chooses one item they want for Christmas; all the other items are divided amongst the families according to their needs. Hope Clinic has been sponsoring the Christmas Adoption Program for 10 years, each year receiving more requests from families and more businesses to become sponsors. In 2009, the program adopted over 200 families with this year’s adoptions being even greater. The families that are not adopted, due to lack of sponsors, are given the opportunity to select gifts for their families from the items donated to Hope Clinic by various organizations and businesses.
By Tuesday, December 14, RepairClinic’s Outreach has also collected 504 items from RepairClinic employees for the Hope Clinic Care and Share Closet. The employees donated household goods such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies, personal care products, and non-perishable food items. Due to the generosity of RepairClinic employees and many others in the community, Hope Clinic is able to provide groceries to over 1,700 households each year through their Care and Share Closet program.
