As the holiday season approaches, our community has a wonderful opportunity to make a lasting impact on the lives of local families facing economic challenges. The Adopt a Family program is back, and we're calling on our generous community to join us in spreading joy and creating memorable moments for those in need.
Why Adopt a Family?
Adopt a Family is more than just a charitable act; it's a chance to make a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of families who could use a little extra support during the holidays. By participating in this initiative, you have the power to bring smiles, warmth, and a sense of community to those facing difficult times.
How can you help?
We invite you to become a donor and play an important role in making this holiday season special for families in our community. Here's how you can get involved:
- Join us: Register as a donor by emailing Diane Tradup or calling 507-328-6346.
- Match with a family: After you register, you will be matched with a family. Each family provides a brief overview of their circumstances and a wish list to guide your generous contributions.
- Shop for gifts: Purchase items from the family's wish list or consider contributing a monetary donation. Every contribution, big or small, makes a difference.
- Spread the word: Share the Adopt a Family initiative with friends, family, and colleagues. The more donors we have, the more families we can support.

Let's come together and make this holiday season a time of giving, compassion, and unity. Adopt a family and make a positive impact that will be remembered long after the decorations are packed away.
