Together, we can create a joyful holiday season for families and children on the Lower Cape.


Each year, this holiday program provides wish list items to more than 130 local families and around 300 children annually.

Donors "adopt-a-family" and purchase the requested clothing and toy items. Our Volunteer Moms organize the donations so parents can pick them up just before the holidays. In addition, HPC organizes a Bike Fund to purchase bicycles for children who are part of the program.

Through the generosity of our community, local kids are having some of their holiday wishes come true!

I'd like to request gifts

If you would like to request gifts for your family, please reach out to HPC by calling (508) 255-9667 and asking to speak to the case manager of the day or email your case manager at the bottom of the webpage.


Due to the ongoing public health emergency, our case managers are experiencing increased caseloads. Please leave a message with your name and phone number and we will reach out to you as soon as possible!

I'd like to ADOPT A FAMILY

We are grateful you would like to support our efforts and "adopt-a-family" this holiday season! There are different ways to support this program, with the easiest (and most enjoyable!) being to get matched with a local family.

Learn about ways to give below!

Being matched with a family means you purchase wish list items including clothing, toys, or a special gift for families and children in need. To be matched with a family contact Adopt-a-Family Coordinator, Maureen Linehan, by:


Calling (774) 801-9501
