Adopt-A-Family list opens with 600 needy families

Tuesday, November 28, 2000

The Pilot-Tribune's annual Adopt-A-Family For Christmas list debuts today with 66 families, from a single mother with six young children, to several lonely senior citizens.

Individuals, families, classes, churches, clubs, businesses and others are invited to adopt a needy Buena Vista County family to provide a special package for a holiday meal they otherwise might not be able to have. Many people also include small gifts, gift certificates or personal items for a touching holiday-season tradition.

The program, beginning its second decade in Storm Lake, is co-administrated by Upper Des Moines Opportunity Inc.

Call 732-1757 to report the coded number of the family you wish to adopt from the following list, starting Monday, and each weekday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. until all have been adopted. Our operators will be able to provide more information on the families' needs and how to participate. Thank you!

Read the list of families in the 11/28 Pilot Tribune.
