Adopt-a-House Program

August 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - December 13, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

We here at Sertoma Centre never stop thinking about the Holidays. We know it is early, but we are beginning our 3rd Annual Adopt-a-House program. We ask wonderful companies like yours to adopt one of our Residential homes for the Holidays. We provide 24 hour supervision for individuals with disabilities who live in each home. There are 5 or 6 individuals living in each home who love to celebrate all things Holiday!! The Adopt-a-House program is such a huge hit, we are starting to approach companies early to see if they want to get in on the FUN!!

How the program works:


* Your company decides now whether they would like to participate in the Adopt-a-House program and we sign you up with a home. Most of the homes have either all males or females living in them except for one home which is co-ed.

* Around October, a list of suggested items will be given to your contact at the company so you have an idea of what they like.

* We ask that you purchase one or two gifts per person costing in the range of $30 to $50 per person.

* All gifts should be wrapped with the name attached on a tag. You can either drop off the gifts at our main location (4343 W. 123rd Street) or arrange for a Sertoma staff to pick them up.

* All gifts will be due, wrapped by Wednesday, December 13, 2017. Sertoma will distribute the gifts to the House staff just in time for Christmas Eve so the residents at Sertoma have a gift to open under the tree on Christmas morning!!!

* Throughout this program, you will have a Sertoma staff member assigned to you as a liaison for the Adopt-a-House program. The liaison will send reminders, check-in to see how the gift ideas are going and make sure all the gifts arrive in time at each of the houses.

* If your group or company would like to visit the house & meet the residents receiving gifts, arrangements can be made with the Adopt-a-House Liaison. Your contact liaison is Laura Gardner and she can be reached at (708) 730-6211 or lgardner@sertomacentre.org.

We hope your COMPANY IS able to Adopt-a-House this Holiday Season TO HELP SPREAD JOY on Christmas Morning!!!


* If you would like to join in the Holiday Spirit and would like to give on an individual basis, we do have the opportunity for you to do so. You will be asked to purchase a gift or two between $30 and $50. Wrap the gift and drop it off at our 123rd location and we will ensure that a needy Sertoma Centre participant will receive your HOLIDAY CHEER this year.

* Please contact Laura Gardner at (708) 730-6211 or lgardner@sertomacentre.org and indicate you would like to be an individual donor for the Adopt-a-House program and she will get you started on SPREADING THE CHEER!
