Ho-ho-help Cornelius Police deliver during Adopt-A-Family for the holidays

Nov. 10. The Cornelius Police Department 2022 Adopt-A-Family for the Holidays program is under way and needs your support.

If you are interested in sponsoring a family, register via this form by Friday, Nov. 25  and the police  will match you with a family in Cornelius.


CPD will provide a wish list from a family. The department recommends three gifts per child, with a maximum dollar amount of $40 per item. (Please follow this rule to keep things the same for all the families and sponsors.)


Consider at least one clothing item and two items from the wish list. Wrapped gifts can be brought to the police station anytime between Dec. 5-16. The final day to bring gifts is Dec.17 and presents must be dropped off at Cornelius Town Hall at 9 am.
