(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) With Christmas less than a week away, families in St. Joseph need your help.
There are still 168 families in the Adopt-A-Family program that still need to be adopted this Christmas.
The Adopt-A-Family agency is looking for adopters and donations to support families and children throughout the city as well as elderly adults living in residential care facilities.
“Without them[adopters] we don’t have a program. So we want to work with them the best way we can. Some people don’t have enough time to go out and do all that.They would rather do a monetary donation,so the family they choose can get gift cards and they can shop,” Adopt-A-Family Director Penny Adams said.
The program is asking for contributions in the form of new toys,monetary donations and personal gifts for anyone infant through adult.
The deadline to adopt a family is 1p.m. on Christmas eve. For more information on how to adopt a family or to make a donation contact Penny Adams at 816-364-1131 or by email at email@example.com.
