Adopt-A-Day Program

Choose to support Bell Family Shelter in an extra meaningful way by donating one day’s operating cost of $1,350. Support an Adopt-a-Day individually or as a family, friend group, with your business, civic org, church, or through a foundation gift, etc.

Whether single or multiple days, this is a great way to celebrate specific dates, like a birthday or anniversary, or as a tribute to someone special.

Your “Adopt-a-Day” gift can be a one-time donation or spread it out over a year with convenient monthly gifts of $112.50.

To set up your Adopt-a-Day gift, and/or a fundraising page to rally support from your family and friends, please reach out to Averie Clark in the Community Engagement office at or call 717.848.5767, ext. 1505      

Adopt-a-Day sponsors are a special part of the Bell family.
