Holiday Family Adoption serving area families

Saturday, November 10, 2012

The Holiday Family Adoption Program, a Spencer-area holiday staple, allows generous area families, businesses and service groups to share in the holiday spirit and bounty.

It's easy to "adopt" a family. You can contact The Daily Reporter Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 262-6610 and let us know the number of the family you wish to "adopt."

Then the fun begins.

You can shop for items on the wish list, wrap them up and drop them off at one of two drop-off days; Saturday, Dec. 8 or Saturday, Dec. 15, from 8:30 a.m. until noon on both days. The collection location will be at the Depot Building at the Clay County Fairgrounds.

Then, on Sunday, Dec. 16, the Spencer Volunteer Firemen, Spencer Rotary volunteers and area UPS employees will deliver the gifts to families.
