Blue C has made it an annual tradition to support SOS’ Adopt A Family Program. This admirable program supports many struggling Orange County families by providing them with gifts and food during the holidays. This year, the Adopt A Family Program will connect donors with over 700 families recommended by organizations and schools in Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, Newport Mesa, Orange and Garden Grove Unified School Districts. 

Please join us in the season of giving by donating any of the following items: 

  • Grocery store gift cards (Smart & Final, Stater Bros, etc.)
  • Department store gift cards (Target, Walmart, JCPenney’s, Sears, Kohls)
  • Visa, Mastercard, or Amazon gift cards

(Due to COVID-19, SOS will only accept gift cards this year)

Please mail or drop off your donations to Blue C HQ (Attn: Michelle Antinora, 3183-C Airway Ave., Costa Mesa, CA 92626) by December 14th. Blue C will hand-deliver to the SOS collection facility at the OC Fair and Events Center on December 15th. 

Your donation will go directly to a family of 6 in Orange County. Due to the pandemic, this family has been struggling with employment since March. Gift cards to department stores will help towards the family’s wish list for warm clothes and go a long way toward lifting their spirits. Gift cards for groceries will help Mom prepare the holiday meal her family loves, and all the extras can help her stock up on nutritious staples for the weeks ahead. 

This year, more than ever, our communities need our help. Thank you for your generosity and for continuing to help make this year special for those who need it most.

Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season,

Blue C
