Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program
holidayThe Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund provides holiday cheer to families caring for children with serious illnesses and disabilities. We pair these families with sponsors who provide gift cards for markets and department stores (Target, Walmart), toys, clothes, books, games, small electronics, play equipment, and other holiday goodies.

Our sincerest thanks go to everyone who has volunteered to sponsor a family this holiday season. Over the years, the generous support of countless volunteers has brightened the holidays of more than 1,600 families.

Here's what one social worker has said about the program:

Wow! How can I begin to thank you and your amazing donors for the generous support provided to so many of our families at Ken Crest? Each family that I referred was completely awestruck by the kindness, generosity, and thought that went into the gifts that were provided. One family was moved to tears; another was smiling more than I've ever seen before. Through the efforts of your wonderful staff and donors, the families we serve at Ken Crest had happier and brighter holidays than they could have ever imagined.

Thanks to the generosity of many sponsors, in 2014 our program served 265 families—the most in its history. We are grateful to everyone who helped make the program a success, especially the folks at the Wissahickon Fire Company, who graciously donated the use of their fire hall for collecting and distributing gifts, and the kind people at Sloane Moving Company, who delivered a truckload of gifts to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
