I’m extremely proud to present our 3rd annual Adopt-A-Family project.
As our Bootcamp Family continues to grow each year, so does the generosity and love that is shared from our special group.
We’ve once again partnered with the Salvation Army to adopt not one, but two families this year! After such a big haul pulled in for one family last year, I have no doubt that we’ll be able to make the holidays brighter for two families this year.
If you’d like to help us with this project, there’s TWO ways to do so.
#1) Make a cash donation that we’ll convert to gift cards to the families we’ve adopted. You can do that in person at Bootcamp. OR donate online using this link:
#2) Get to know each family’s wish list below. Commit to one or more items. And be sure to email CJ at CJ@STLFitnessBootcamp.com so I can keep tally on what to cross off the list so we can avoid getting a lot of duplicate gifts. I’ll do my best to keep this page updated and cross off items as they’re accounted for.
********Please note: Gifts and cash donations must be made no later than DECEMBER 6TH!! (If buying a gift, wrapping is optional. Please attach some kind of identifying label so we know who the gift is for).
Without further adieu, here are our families:
This family of 4 would appreciate any assistance this year. Mom has managed to go back to school to further her education to better her life for her family. Her first daughter is disabled and has had several brain surgeries among other surgeries. This has put a strain on the family and mom has had to move around and depend on family and other assistance while balancing other aspects of her life. Mom says she tries to do everything she can but fears she won’t be able to do enough for them this Christmas.

This single mother and 3 boys could use some happiness this Christmas season. The family has lost their home to eminent domain and the children were transferred to an unsafe and unaccredited school district. To protect her sons and to give them the chance they deserve, mom enrolled them into private school. This has been a blessing and a curse because while the school is what they dreamed, the tuition is cutting into the family’s income. The bills are piling up and mom worries they may be homeless by the end of the year. Though they understand Christmas isn’t about the presents, it would be a great blessing for the family to have a happy Christmas.
