Adopt-a-Family returns for holiday

Tuesday, December 4, 2007

The Pilot-Tribune's Adopt-a-Family is back for the holiday season. Over 100 families are included on the list, from elderly couples to a single mom with five young children.

In the program, individuals, families, classrooms, businesses, clubs and organizations may "adopt" a family to help for Christmas by choosing a code number from the list of descriptions published in the newspaper. The list will be updated weekly until all are chosen.

The participants then provide for food for a holiday meal for their chosen family. Many include gifts, cards, gift certificates or other items. Call 732-1757 to choose a family, Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

The packages are dropped off at UDMO in Storm Lake before Christmas, and our team of volunteers will deliver them in time for the holidays.

As space and manpower is limited, gift certificates may be helpful as an option to large packages of groceries.
