The Westside CARES Christmas Adopt-a-Family Program matches families in need of a little extra help this holiday season with adopters from around our community. While this program is not designed to satisfy every wish and need of the 60 participating families, it goes a long way toward easing the anxiety parents feel when their budgets just won’t stretch far enough to accommodate holiday spending. As parents, we all want to see our children’s eyes light up on Christmas morning. For many struggling to make ends meet this joy becomes an often-unattainable luxury. Please take one of the envelopes from our Sanctuary tree or connect with Arlene Penman for further info.
