Adopt an Angel

Adopt an Angel - THANK YOU!

Helping 900 children have a brighter holiday

A HUGE thank you to the donors and volunteers who made the 2107 Adopt an Angel event the biggest it’s ever been. With your help we served over 930 children. Adopt an Angel, is a Summit County-based program that is in its 23rd year. On Tuesday, December 12, 2017, we transformed the Silverthorne Pavilion into a toy factory, where thousands of gifts were given to pre-approved families and children. Santa’s helpers were on hand to spread cheer and help families pick their gifts. Any remaining toys were given to local nonprofits that work with kids.

Last year, Adopt an Angel allowed approximately 800 children and 367 families to enjoy a brighter holiday season. Due to the program’s overwhelming success and a need for broader assistance, the Town of Silverthorne and the Silverthorne Police Department are transitioning the coordination of the Adopt an Angel program over to the Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC).

This event would not be possible without donors and volunteers. Thank you to everyone who made 2017 a wonderful success.
