Adopt A Family

Adopt-a-Family2The Sutphin Boulevard BID’s Adopt-a-Family program provides clothing, toys and shoes to children in shelters and foster care agencies in Queens, NY during the Christmas holiday season. In 2010, as a response to an overwhelming increase in joblessness and homelessness in downtown Jamaica, the BID suspended its annual holiday party to support 5 families in need. 2013 marks our 4th annual program celebration and now supports over 100 families in need.

Our most recent adopt-a-family program celebration took place on Thursday, December 19th at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center in Jamaica, NY. Participants typically live in shelters and are identified through community stakeholders.
