A Dominican Tradition for over 30 Years
Monday, November 29, 2021 (All day) to Wednesday, December 15, 2021 (All day)

Dominican Faculty, Staff and Students are invited to give Christmas gifts to children in need. 

Adopt-A-Kid is back and we have committed to buying gifts for 500 in-need kids, ages 0-12. They need you to be Santa this year!

Due to overwhelming demand, Adopt-A-Kid is now entirely online - just CLICK and SHIP directly to this year's partner organization, Fraternite Notre Dame in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago. Use one of the Wishlists below to select a gift curated by Adopt-A-Kid. Purchasing a Wishlist item means the gift will be sent directly to the organization - no wrapping necessary. Fraternite Notre Dame will distribute the gifts to the proper age children.

Don't forget to add a warm pair of gloves or a scarf for the adults!
