The DaVinci Center


The DaVinci Center is holding it’s annual

Adopt-A-Family Program.

During the Christmas Season agency staff identifies families who are truly needy and attempts to find sponsors who would anonymously shop for each child to buy at least one item for that child.

We are in need of more sponsors who would be willing to make some kids happy and in addition make yourself feel good about doing this kind deed. If interested or for information contact the Center at 272-7474 or e-mail the DaVinci Center at So far we have sponsors for 300 children; we need sponsors for 135 more children as of 12/12/2016. Thank you.
