Adopt An Angel

Adopt An Angel 2021


Gateway Longview’s Adopt-an-Angel program provides Christmas gifts for children and families in our care.


When you "Adopt-An-Angel," you're giving the gift of hope to children, teenagers, and young adults and their families in need during the holiday season. Year after year, we’re thankful for the many businesses, churches, and community groups whose gifts and support offer holiday cheer for hundreds of children in Western New York.

Gateway Longview is once again opening up this opportunity to the public! If you or your organization would like to leave a lasting mark on a child's Christmas, consider adopting angels through the purchase of gifts this Holiday season! We would email you a wish list for each Angel (Angel = one of our youth or their family members) you decide to adopt. We would then schedule a time for you/your organization in the first two weeks of December to do a “curbside drop off” of the gifts at our Main Street campus in Williamsville at our Maintenance Building. The gifts then get sorted and distributed to our youth!  Please click on the information sheet to read more.


We ask that you spend as little or as much as you are comfortable with, generally $50 per Angel.

Physical gifts are preferred for Adopt-An-Angel but during these challenging times we know that may not be possible so we will also accept Gift Cards.  Gift Cards from Walmart, Target, Amazon or a local grocery like Tops, Wegmans, or Aldi are always needed.


Each gift leaves a lasting impact for our youth, from preschool through high school, to teens and young adults. Last year alone, Gateway Longview partnered with over 40 groups from across Western New York to fulfill over 900 gifts. Simply fill out the interest form below!

Get Involved

Whether you're able to give two hours during a one-time visit, or two hours once a month to spend time with youth in care, you can be sure that your time is invested well. So much of what volunteers accomplish at Gateway Longview would not be feasible without the donated time, passion, and commitment of our community.



Unrestricted gifts provide for moments that mean the most. As part of Gateway Longview Foundation's yearly pledge to support Agency programs, your donation helps with needs like winter coats, bus tokens, bike helmets, art supplies, cots for preschool, finding safe homes for kids in foster care, events for kinship families, parent training programs and more.
