Adopt-A-Family Instructions

Join in the Spirit of Giving
December 2012

We have several families from both our sister school TA Brown and here at Doss that need a little extra help this Holiday Season. You can make their holiday joyful by adopting a family and purchasing gifts for them during the holiday season.


To adopt a family from TA Brown:

Step 1: Choose a family to adopt

  • Look for the bucket in the PTA office with the referral forms.
  • Choose a family to “adopt” (view the wish list on the back of the form).
  • Adopt a large family with a friend(s) or your child’s girl/boy scout troop.

Step 2: Complete the green Sign-Out sheet with your name and email

Step 3: Gather the items

  • You do not have to get all the items on the wish list.
  • Consider giving an HEB or Wal-Mart gift card so the family can buy food for a holiday meal.

Step 4: Contact the family to arrange delivery

Step 5: Deliver the gifts by Monday, December 17th

  • If possible, deliver the gifts to the family’s home.
  • If you prefer, you may arrange delivery at T.A. Brown Elementary, located at 505 West Anderson Lane.

To adopt a family from Doss:

The procedure for adopting a family from Doss is different in order to maintain privacy.

Step 1: Contact school counselor Beverly Throm

Step 2: Select a family

  • Doss families will have completed a 2-item wish list for their children.
  • Consider giving an HEB or Wal-Mart gift card so the family can buy food for a holiday meal.

Step 3: Deliver the gifts to Ms. Throm’s office by Monday, December 17th.
