100 Neediest: Adopt a Case - United Way of Greater St. Louis

Adopting a family or individual through 100 Neediest Cases is an easy and meaningful way to help address specific needs and make the holiday season brighter for people in need from Alton to Warrenton.

When adopting a family or individual, our volunteers will provide you with information about a case (names of family members, ages, needs, etc.). You are then asked to purchase at least one gift for each person in the adopted family. Many donors choose to provide additional support to meet specific needs (gift cards, furniture, clothes, bedding, etc.). All goods and gifts go directly to the family, through a social worker.

Adoptions for our 2016 100 Neediest Cases campaign are now closed. Adoptions are expected to reopen in November of 2017.
