Brookfield Zoo Community Tree Trim

November 22, 2014 - November 23, 2014

Send us your pictures for the CAFFA Tree!

This year, the CAFFA Board will participate in the Community Tree Trim at Brookfield Zoo. The event coincides with National Adoption Awareness Month and provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the faces of adoption.

WE NEED YOUR HELP—please send us a picture or two of your beautiful family…and if you’re waiting to be matched, send us a picture of YOU so we can create a “Hoping to Adopt” ornament!  We will take your pictures, laminate them, and turn them into ornaments for our tree.

To ensure your pictures will be included, please send them by by November 17th via email to or by snail mail to:

Chicago Area Families For Adoption
P.O. Box 5995
Naperville, IL 60567-5995

The Tree will be decorated during the weekend of November 22nd – 23rd.

Our Tree Location:  #109 in the East Mall, near Stingray Bay

If you are planning a visit to the zoo during the Holiday Magic Festival, stop by to see our tree.  You are welcome to bring your ornaments / pictures, as the trees will be on display during the Holiday Magic Festival until the end of the year.  If you choose to bring your own picture ornaments, please be sure to laminate them, or coat them with durable clear packing tape, so that they withstand the Chicago winter!  As a reminder, we will not be able to return any pictures sent to us.  We hope to see all of our families represented!

If you have any questions, please send an email to, refer to this PDF file, or leave a voice mail message at (708) 79-ADOPT!
