12 Days ’til Christmas…

12 days; that’s how many days are left to contribute to this year’s Adopt-a-Family Program. Time is running out!

For those readers who don’t know, Closer to Home Community Services is a Calgary and Airdrie-based, not-for-profit agency that delivers a variety of programs designed to meet the needs of vulnerable children and their families. Every year, we partner with members of the community and various organizations to provide less than fortunate families with gifts and food during the holiday season.

Last year, the Closer to Home Adopt-a-Family Program helped make Christmas a little brighter for over 200 children and 100 families. This year, we have 35 families still waiting to be adopted and would like to extend an invitation to everyone that would like to participate.

You can choose to sponsor a whole family based on family size, or you can sponsor an individual child. Upon the submission of your Donor Application form, you will receive a wish list based on your application. You can choose to shop for gifts, or you may send a cash or cheque, and Closer to Home will do the gift shopping on your behalf.

Follow these links to see the Adopt-a-family 2011 Flyer as well as the Adopt-A-Family Donor Application Form. Please feel free to pass on this information if you know of anyone that may be interested in participating this year.

Thank you to everyone who has already adopted a family this year, and to those who haven’t yet had the chance to respond, we look forward to hearing from you. For more information, please call Tina Chapman at 403-543-0550 ext 226 or email tchapman@closertohome.com.

Wishing you a happy holiday season,

Closer to Home Community Services
