Adopt a Family

Adopt A Family 2023 is a wrap! We couldn’t have done without so many of you. It’s hard to put into words what Adopt A Family means for our families, but this message we received sums it up well! “I’m speechless at the generosity of you all, and the community. I had no idea at what all we’d receive, to think of something like cooking spray. Wow! I’m shocked. I can’t express how thankful and blessed we are. You all definitely took a lot of worry from me and I’m very grateful. I’m now excited for Christmas as before today I was kinda dreading it. I can’t wait to do the box of things with her and to see her face when I show her those things and Christmas morning.
