What will I receive?2019-10-11T16:11:38-07:00

When we refer families to our Adopt-a-Family initiative, we sit down with them to fill out their wish list. This list can include items such as winter gear (coats, boots, etc.), toys, household items, grocery gift cards and more. However, what is in your package will be dependent on the donations we receive.
