Adopt a Family

Thank you for your participation in the 18th annual Star 104.5 Adopt a Family Radio-thon for the Salvation Army!  Star Listeners adopted over 1860 families who needed a little help this Christmas.  Your generosity allows the Salvation Army to allocate almost a quarter of a million dollars to other important programs serving the metro area.  Please call this Salvation Army number with any questions:  402-898-5888.



What is it?

The Adopt a Family Radio-thon is one of the most unique programs in the country.  This is our 18th year of matching Star 104.5 listeners with families in need in the Omaha and Council bluffs metro area.  You actually adopt a family for the holiday, providing a grocery voucher for a holiday meal for the family and Christmas gifts for each child 15 and under. 

How it works!

Once you adopt a family you’ll receive information in the mail about your family.  Then you get to go shopping.  The information you receive will help you with some of the family’s needs and wants along with sizes and other helpful information.  You’re also encouraged to contact the family with any questions, like maybe a favorite color for example.  Finally you get to wrap and deliver Christmas directly to your family. 

Remember 100 percent of everything you donate goes directly to the family in need.  You can click here for a list of Adopt a Family guidelines. 

Join Us!

Thursday and Friday, November 30th and December 1st Star 104.5 will be live at Westroads Mall in the center court for the Adopt a Family Radio-thon.  Between 6am and 6pm each day you can adopt a family by calling 402-898-6050.  Walk up adoptions will also be available again this year at the mall during the radio-thon.
