Crown Point Accepting Adopt a Family Donations

The City of Crown Point and Mayor Pete Land will again partner with the  Crown Point Community School Corp. to spread cheer to local families in need during the  holiday season.  

This year, the City will assist approximately 12 families and 30 children selected by the  Crown Point Community School Corp. The city and school district have partnered for 14 years to make this program a success. 

Please help us provide a Merry Christmas to our local families in need. Here are a few ways  you can participate in our Adopt a Family program: 

  • Dine at Culver’s on the corner of Summit Street and Broadway from 3-8 p.m. Friday,  Nov. 18. Culver’s of Crown Point will donate 20% of all sales to the City of Crown  Point’s Adopt a Family program. Simply mention, “Adopt a Family,” when ordering.  
  • Dine at Tavern on Main, 136 S. Main St., on Tuesday, Nov. 29. Tavern on Main will  donate 10% of all sales to the City of Crown Point’s Adopt a Family program.  • Donate non-perishable food items or personal care items at the Main Entrance of  Bulldog Park, located at 183 S. West St.

“The City of Crown Point has helped dozens of families in need over the years during the  holiday season,” Crown Point Mayor Pete Land said. “It is heartwarming to see our  community embrace these families and provide them with a memorable Christmas.”
