Abingdon Adopt-a-Family for the Winter Holidays

The Abingdon Elementary PTA has partnered with the Student Support Team at Abingdon to help support families in need during the holiday season in our school community. The additional families have been added so if you missed out last week you have another chance!

Once you sign up, you will be sent an email with your Adopt-a-Family's Wish List within 24 hours. Please email the Abingdon PTA at with any questions.

Donations will need to be brought to the main office at Abingdon wrapped and labeled with family number by Thursday December 16.

Thanks for helping those in need within the Abingdon Community!
