Want to help make Christmas merrier for some children and their families in need this year? The Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center’s (ECCAC) annual Adopt-A-Family program is underway. The ECCAC is seeking donors who will purchase gifts for individual families who have been identified by the Center. Last year, the program helped 261 children have a brighter Holiday.
Simply contact ECCAC and select a family from the list, shop for them, and bring unwrapped gifts by December 14, or sooner to the Niceville center.
ECCAC’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. The Center’s child-friendly facility in Niceville houses a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, and ECCAC staff and volunteers. Services are provided at no cost by ECCAC, a 501-C-3 non-profit organization.
To make arrangements to Adopt-A-Family, call 850-833-9237, or email Katie Crowell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center in Niceville is located at 401 McEwen Drive.
