Adopt A Family

Volunteer Services, in partnership with the Employee Engagement Team, will again celebrate the holiday season by helping UNC Medical Center employees and their families who are struggling financially through our Adopt A Family program.

Last year more than 50 individual departments and units adopted 53 UNC Medical Center employees and their families, providing clothes, household items, and children’s toys for during the holiday season.

This year we encourage departments and work units to continue the trend and help as many employee families as possible.

If your department is interested in adopting a UNC Medical Center family (or families), please send an email to, and let us know by Friday, Nov. 4. Please be sure to include the size of family (or families) your department is able to adopt (e.g. one family of four, two families of three). For more information about the program and eligibility, please contact Volunteer Services at or 984-974-4793 or visit the Employee Engagement Team webpage at
