Christmas is Coming to ECCAC— It’s Adopt-A-Family Time!


ECCAC is seeking donors who will purchase new and unwrapped gifts for individual families for Christmas. Gift certificates are great for teens and Christmas decorations are always a bonus if funds allow. Last year, the program helped 197 children in 70 families have a festive holiday season. You can sign up now for Adopt-a-Family on-line at Or, contact Nicole Steinbrink at, or call her at 850-833-9237, Ext. 222 to make arrangements. Then shop for the families and bring unwrapped gifts by December 14th, or sooner to the Niceville or DeFuniak Springs Centers.

You can also consider making a 2021 year-end tax-deductible donation. ECCAC’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children.
