ANWEP’s Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays Initiative

Every year, ANWEP adopts some needy families in our immediate community for the holiday season. Our focus is typically on single parent families with young children. The goal is to make every one’s Christmas wishes come true. ANWEP collects the list of wants for Christmas and endeavors to provide most items on the list or issue a gift card to enable the family to purchase food and other necessities.

This year, ANWEP  adopted three needy families. Two families in Nigeria and one family in our immediate DFW community.

Here with the ANWEP National President Engr. Ogechi Ugwulebo, and ANWEP Dallas Chapter members Dr. Lynda Mbah M.D. and Mrs. Lola Henniger (Entrepreneur/Owner  Lola’s Restaurant and Lola’s African Market) delivering a $500 gift card to Patrice Gardner and her children in Dallas, TX.

This family still needs a lot of help. There are no furniture in their apartment and no beds. Everyone sleeps on the floor. Patrice also struggles with feeding her children every day. According to her, they visit nearby food pantries daily but most times the pantries run out of food.
