Adopt-a-Family 2016
Yes, we would like to receive a list of gifts to purchase for a Jacob's Heart family or send a donation so that Jacob's Heart can shop for a family.

Here's how the process works:

Each Jacob's Heart family will be asked by our volunteers and staff what kinds of gifts each family member would like for the holidays. The price range for each gift is about $50, with a maximum of three gifts per child. And, it is always very meaningful to include special gifts for parents. Moms and dads of children with serious illnesses are extremely stressed - a special gift for them means a lot!

Once we have the family's list, Jacob's Heart will contact each "adopter/donor" and provide a list of the favorite things, favorite colors, sizes and requests. We hope to get each donor the lists soon as possible. (Hopefully before Black Friday!)

This year, we have created gift registries on AMAZON and TARGET to make it easy for our donors.


Once you've shopped, we ask that you please deliver your gifts to the Jacob's Heart Family Center at 680 West Beach Street in Watsonville during the week of December 9th, or help us make arrangements for pick-up.

Please include a gas, grocery or store gift card for your family.

Jacob's Heart staff and volunteers will deliver gifts to the families at home or in the hospital. Please let us know if you'd like to help us wrap and/or deliver the gifts.

Thank you for filling out the form below. Happy holidays from all of us at Jacob's Heart!

Your answer
How many families would you like to adopt?
The average family size is four and the largest family we currently serve has eight people. Please help Jacob's Heart keep the gift levels as equal as possible among the Jacob's Heart children. While we appreciate that some of our donors are exceedingly generous, we ask that you keep the gift range at about $50 per gift with a three-gift limit per child. We'd rather you adopt more children or supplement with gas or grocery gift cards if possible. Thank you!

Jacob's Heart provides holiday gifts to families of children with cancer and other life-threatening/life-limiting illnesses. For some families, this may be their last holiday together. For others, it may be their first holiday after the death of a precious child. Would you be interested in adopting a family who recently lost a child?
Jacob's Heart serves families in Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito and South Santa Clara Counties. Do you prefer a particular county?
Choose all that apply.
Can you drop gifts off at the Jacob's Heart Family Center during business hours during the week of December 5 - 9?
Please call us to confirm a time for drop off or pick up. We prefer gifts unwrapped, but if you wrap them, please make a clear list of contents.
