Starting in 2018, The Tinervin Foundation decided to implement adopt-a-family. Famlies in need are selected by various organizations in which they feel have financial hardships and are in need of items for themselves, children and their homes. In 2018 we partnered with The Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington/Normal and MCCA/Neville House. The families each orgainzation picked provided us with a list of items that they are needing and wanting for Christmas including household items, clothing, toys, and other necessities. We then purcheased and wrapped these items and delivered to the organization. We are hoping to expand this initiative for 2019 and adopt even more families.
