Holiday Family Adoption Program

Thursday, November 17, 2011

The 2011 Holiday Family Adoption Program is an annual collaborative effort between Upper Des Moines Opportunity, The Daily Reporter and generous area families, businesses and service groups provides seasonal gifts for individuals and families alike.

According to UDMO Director Anita Jorgensen, the number of Clay County families indicating hardships has increased over the past few years. She cited an October report for the agency, which covers lower-income to middle-income folks, which details 379 families, or 701 people, receiving assistance at least once in the form of various services offered at UDMO.

Call 262-6610 to select a family from the list. The list will be continually updated throughout the weeks leading up to the drop off.

Those participating may deliver their presents the mornings of Saturday, Dec. 10 and Saturday, Dec. 17 to The Depot building on the Clay County fairgrounds. Deliveries will occur Sunday, Dec. 18.
