Spreading Joy: Annual Adopt-A-Family Program
This year, the annual Garden of Dreams Adopt-A-Family program was hosted virtually and expanded its reach from New York to Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Partnering with MSG Entertainment, MSG Sports, MSG Networks, and CLG employees, along with many friends of the foundation, contributed gifts from Garden of Dreams AmazonSmile Charity Lists to help brighten the holidays for young people and families in need. In New York, Garden of Dreams partnered with the Police Athletic League of New York City. While on the west coast, the foundation teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Los Angeles and the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada. Donated gifts ranged from baby items and household items to toys and tablets for virtual learning.
“The Police Athletic League is beyond thrilled to be a part of the Garden of Dreams Adopt-A-Family program. The Adopt a Family program has put smiles on the faces of so many of our PAL parents and children during a time of year that is sentimental to so many people. By the Garden of Dreams providing this opportunity this year, it is particularly special since it is providing a beam of light for so many families during a year that has been filled with darkness. The Police Athletic League is so grateful to the Garden of Dreams and all those who were amazingly thoughtful in making this Holiday Season a special one!”– Danielle Madden-Buck, Chief of Programs, Police Athletic League
Thanks to our supporters, the Adopt-A-Family program supplied over 2,700 items to families in need! While many activities and gatherings have been canceled this year, the holidays have not been canceled. Thank you for spreading joy, making an impact, and keeping the holiday spirit alive this season.
