A Very Merry Christmas to Adopt-a-Family
The deacons supported Adopt-a-Family this advent season collecting gifts for two families. Thanks to all your generosity they were able to fulfill everything on their list and way more! The families are both headed by single moms - one with a five-year-old daughter and the other a nine-year-old son. Barbie dolls, sports equipment, clothing plus things they didn't even ask for but received including Safeway and other store gift cards.
Adopt A Family provides subsidies for rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments, food vouchers and auto repair. By providing basic assistance to families, they help prevent the dangerous slide into homelessness for many families who would otherwise be without help. They work to help families stabilize their lives and create a plan of action to help them move towards a better life.
The deacons thank you!
