2017 Adopt a Family Application Deadline is Tomorrow

The Volunteer Services Department, in partnership with the Employee Engagement Team, would like to celebrate the upcoming holiday season by helping UNC Medical Center’s employees’ families who struggle with these hard economic times through our Adopt a Family program. The deadline for nominations is Nov. 3.

Last year over 44 individual departments and units adopted a UNC Health Care employee family and as an organization we were able to help 47 employees provide clothes, household items, and children’s toys for their families during the holiday season.

Do you know of a UNC Medical Center employee who is facing financial hardship or has recently suffered a tragic event? If so please nominate them for the Adopt a Family program by sending an application, completed to the best of your ability, to adoptafamily@unchealth.unc.edu. You may also submit a self-nomination by sending in a completed application form to adoptafamily@unchealth.unc.edu. Please note all applications must be typed- no handwritten applications will be accepted. All applications are due no later than Friday, Nov. 3.

For more information about the program and eligibility, please contact Michelle O'Neil in Volunteer Services at adoptafamily@unchealth.unc.edu or 984-974-4793.
