Adopt-A-Family progran gears up
St. Mary Community Action Agency is preparing for its 2013 Adopt- A- Family program to provide under-served families with the blessings of gifts and food.
Last year the program reached more than 20 families who were in need and grateful for the community support.
“Our program’s sponsors made each family’s wish of a good Christmas come true!” said Almetra Franklin, CAA’s chief executive officer.
This year, Franklin said, the agency is looking forward to the support of the community to make the 2013 program another successful year.
St. Mary CAA is asking for sponsors and donations to ensure that this year’s event is successful.
Each sponsored family will receive food, clothing and a gift for each child per household.
The deadline for donations is Monday, Dec. 9. Families will receive the gifts on Wednesday, Dec. 11, at St. Mary Community Action Agency’s gymnasium, 1407 Barrow St., Franklin, at 10 a.m. Sponsors are encouraged to attend the Christmas gathering. For more information or to sponsor a family, please contact Summers Jones at 337-828-5703.
