Adopt-A-Family for the Holidays program now in progress

Staff reports

There’s no place like home for the holidays, and no one better way to spend the season than with family and the Classy Ladies Sisters of Service. 

The Classy Ladies Sisters of Service is helping families with the 2010 Adopt-A-Family for the Holidays Program.

The Classy Ladies Sisters of Service is also providing opportunities for those who are able to help with an opportunity to assist needy families through the Adopt-A-Family program. Sponsors are needed to provide new toys, clothing and household items for these families. If interested, contact one of the numbers listed below to arrange pick-up of the donation.

CLSOS is also helping families who are in crisis, enjoy a special Christmas. They are seeking families that are facing financial hardships and unable to afford a Christmas dinner or toys for their children. CLSOS also wants to help single parent families with very low incomes, large families where the earning member has been living unemployed or even college students. If you feel that you fit the category or know someone who does, apply for the 2009 Classy Ladies Social Club Adopt a Family for the Holiday Program.

The Adopt-A-Family program encourages individuals, churches, groups, other social clubs and institutions help spread some Christmas cheer by nominating a family.

The application deadline date is midnight on Dec. 18. The winner will be notified by phone so make sure a valid phone number is provided.
