The festivities of the holiday season are upon us.  A special way to celebrate the spirit of the season is to consider adopting a child or a family for the holidays through the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.

According to Nancy Rivera, coordinator of the Adopt a Family program, “More than 70 families with 110 children have sent in their holiday wishes and are hoping to have their wishes granted.” Big Brothers Big Sisters will provide a list of wishes to companies or individuals choosing to adopt a family for Christmas. The agency requests that wrapped gifts be delivered to the office by December 16. If it is not possible to deliver gifts to the office, those adopting a child or family can contact the agency to arrange for the pick-up of the gifts.

If you or your company would like more information about adopting a child or a family for Christmas, please call Nancy today at 618-398-3162.
