Adopt A Family Holiday Gift Giving

Each year, we organize an Adopt-A-Family Program for families participating in our services. Due to the generosity of donors like you, we are able to provide a sense of normalcy to individuals and their families participating in our programs during the holiday season.

Individuals interested in participating in our Adopt A Family program this holiday season can do so by choosing from the options below:

  • Adopt an entire family(s): We would send you a wish list compiled by the family, or families, and you can do the shopping yourself.
  • Donate cash or gift cards to Catalyst: This allows our staff to shop and make purchases according to the sponsored family’s wish lists.
  • Donate new, unwrapped items such as wrapping paper, toys, and/or clothing:  These will be distributed to families who may not have been specifically adopted by anyone. (Ask us how we can help!)
Ready to make a commitment to participate? Contact Carolina or Natalie at 343-7798 to talk about which option will work best for you!

Evening With Catalyst

Catalyst’s annual fundraising event, Evening With Catalyst, is held in May. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward supporting our mission to reduce the incidence of intimate partner violence through crisis intervention services, community education, and the promotion of healthy relationships. For sponsorship opportunities, please call our Chico Business Office at (530) 343-7711 and ask for Anastacia Snyder.
