Adopt-A-Kid Program – Toy Drive
SVIA is proud to announce that the proceeds from
this year's golf outing will be donated to support the
Adopt-A-Kid Program. The Adopt-A-Kid Program
was founded in 1988 by Rosanne Dattalo-Eiternick, a
graduate of Mother Guerin High School class of '69.
Over the past 30 years, 600,000 gifts have been
distributed to 300,000 children. Three milking cows
have been purchased in Africa, and after 10 years
they have grown into a herd of over 388 milking
cows for multiple villages. The organization helps to
meet the needs of Native American children on
reservations, children whose parents are in prison,
and military families. They also help children in
foster care, low income homes, and those mentally
and physically challenged. It doesn't stop there.
Adopt-A-Kid also provides help for young single
parents, battered women shelters, and even senior

We will be collecting $10 toys for children
to 16 years of age. Toys can be dropped off at the
SVIA Hall on Saturday and Sunday mornings
from 10:00 – 10:30 AM or at Men’s club on Nov. 14.
All toys must be dropped off by Sunday, Nov. 25.
