Adoption Coalition of Texas Needs Volunteers for the Holiday Season
Press Release

November, 2008

Adoption Coalition of Texas helps match donors with kids for the Holiday Season. These donors are given a child’s wish list and then the donor shops for a specific child. The first year (2006) they covered about 75 kids. Last year (2007), their second year, they covered 200 kids. These gifts are wonderful and for many, it is what they will get. It is nice to show children that people do care -- these are all kids in the foster care system.

This year Adooption Coalition of Texas needs help. For them to be able to continue with this project, they need volunteers to head this up. The volunteers would:

  1. Coordinate the gift lifts for kids (input into a spreadsheet, track who has submitted a child)
  2. Match the child with a donor (the donors may specify an age range, etc). (this includes scanning in and/or faxing the wish list to the donor and keeping a copy for our records in case something arises)
  3. Coordinate the delivery of the gifts to the central delivery location (in South Austin)
  4. Organize all of the items for pick up by CPS case workers and/or foster families

If you can help with this, please email the Executive Director of Adoption Coalition of Texas, Tracy Eilers, at and put “Holiday” in the subject line. She is hoping to have a group of 3-4 people to take this on this year.
