The Batavia United Way works with the Batavia School District to identify families who need financial help getting through the holidays. In 2016 the District identified 98 families who needed assistance.
The program matches families in need with supportive businesses and community members who purchase holiday gifts for their “adoptive” families from a wish list. To adopt a family, contact melinda@BataviaUnitedWay.org. To donate, checks can be made out to the Batavia United Way, or gift card contributions to Batavia United Way, P.O. Box 372, Batavia, IL 60510. Donations can also be made online. Any donations specified for the Adopt A Family program are used only for this project.
