Variety Holiday Adopt-a-Child

Posted on Mon Oct 19 2020

'Tis the season!  

Each winter, Variety adopts hundreds of children across Southeastern Michigan who are in need of a special holiday. With your help, each child will receive holiday gifts of new clothing, toys, books, and essentials.  Join us for the 13th annual Variety Holiday Adopt-a-Child effort! 

How You Can Help:

1. Adopt one child (or more!) by calling 248-258-5511 or by emailing
You will receive details via email about your child(ren) including age, gender, clothing and shoe size, and a personalized wish list for ideas.  The sooner you adopt, the more time to shop!  

2. Have fun! Shop for your child(ren) and select ideas for the list or add to it. There is no set donation; however, Variety strives to provide each child with several gifts to make the holiday shiny and bright. Remember to track the value of your donation for tax-documentation purposes.

3. This year, as we navigate safety precautions due to the pandemic, we ask that you wrap the gifts prior to delivering them to be distributed.   This year, for your safety and ease, we have instituted an easy curbside drop-off method.  Donors can drop-off their wrapped gifts between 9:30 am and 2:30 pm on December 3, 4, 7 or 8 at the Variety office.  Please email or call 248-258-5511 to schedule your preferred date and time.  We will meet you (with a mask and a smile beneath!) at your vehicle.  While we certainly will miss the traditional annual wrapping party, we are most grateful for your continued support as you enable a brighter and happier holiday for children.

Your wish list awaits! Not a shopper? You can also sponsor a child by making a donation online at or by calling 248-258-5511.
