Adopt a Child for Christmas

With Christmas less than two weeks away, many people are just finishing up their holiday shopping.

But many local foster kids are still on the waiting list for Christmas gifts.

The deadline to donate gifts to Teaching Family Homes’s Adopt a Child program is Monday.

Program assistant Marcie Miller says the non–profit organization still has 29 children in need of adoption.

Each year, the kids create a small list of gifts they hope to receive on Christmas morning.

If you choose to participate in the program, you can buy as little or as much as you would like.
