Adopt-A-Family for the holidays

The Student Volunteer Bureau is a student-led community service organization that is focused on performing acts of service for the Albion community. This year, we will continue our annual, yearly tradition of hosting Adopt-A-Family. Adopt-A-Family is an event where students, faculty, staff, and groups from campus purchase items for families of the community that are struggling to purchase necessities or desires for their families during the holiday season. By “adopting” a family these groups or individuals say they will purchase items for an Albion family. We are currently looking for students, faculty, staff, and groups on campus to “Adopt”-A-Family for the holidays!

If you have any further questions, please contact our President, Marrissa Price at or our Vice President, Lindsay Ratcliffe at !
