Adopt-A-Family is an outreach ministry that partners with families, local businesses and the community to help families in need at Christmas time. Each year hundreds of families are touched in a personal way, either by adopting a family for Christmas or by being adopted. During the Christmas season, families, groups and individuals express their desire to adopt a family. They are matched with families that are struggling to provide Christmas for their families. Those adopting provide a holiday food basket (or grocery gift card) and gifts for the children.
