Adopt A Family Drive

Adopt A Family Drive

Thank you to all those who adopted families or contributed financially to the Adopt-a-Family program this year. Together we reached 64 families with individualized gifts for every member in each family. Many also received food packages and grocery cards we purchased with the use of our Family Fund, and over Thanksgiving and the December holidays, we gave food and grocery gift cards to an additional 50+ households through our day and employment programs. All the families and individuals we reached were thrilled by the thought and care expressed by our gift buyers and contributors. Truly, the holidays were more meaningful for those who received as well as those who gave.
