There is a great need for Adopt-a-Family sponsors who wish to give in a personal way by providing gifts and food for one or more families. There are 35-40 families that wish to be adopted but sponsors are currently needed.

Call 920-674-4499 for information about the program and to give an application. It’s a great way for a family to get involved in Christmas “giving”, or a way for a business, friends, church, neighborhood, or organization to work together to provide for those that need help this year.

The Christmas Neighbors office is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday through Dec. 4. Get more information at www.christmasneighbors.org. Applications close Dec. 4.

Those who prefer to make a monetary donation can send a check to PO Box 177, Jefferson, or donate online at the website. New and used toys, hats, mittens, scarves, blankets, wrapping paper and used children’s clothing is also needed by Dec. 11.

Christmas Neighbors is continuing to take applications for the Toy Program from low income families living in Jefferson County.

Applications will close on Dec. 3 with distribution on Dec. 11.
