Adopt-a-Family 2017

Annual Christmas Adopt-a-Family

Since 1987 Designer Walls has been adopting a needy family at Christmas.

Our annual campaign includes donations and gifts from customers, vendors, family, and of course our team to provide a needy family with everything possible to make a perfect Christmas – from food, clothing and toys to beds, tables and appliances. The story is different every year yet it is really the same – people, especially children, need help!

Watch our videos to become inspired and join our yearly campaign. We are always looking for new friends to become involved and to share the magic that happens every year!

Ryan Cruz, project manager, has been pedaling across the state on the Pan Ohio Hope Ride every year in honor of his mother who suffered with a brain tumor. The ride supports the American Cancer Society and Ryan has raised thousands of dollars through his efforts to help fight cancer.

Designer Walls has sponsored Ryan’s team every year and proudly cheers him on in his fundraising efforts. Click here to donate to Ryan’s next ride!
