(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 adopt@helpmenow.org.

A strong cold front has pushed through northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. For tonight, we'll see clear skies as overnight lows drop down to the middle 50s. We could wake up to some foggy conditions on Monday morning, but it will be a sunny & nice day for the first day of fall.
