Need for sponsors of Christmas Neighbors
JEFFERSON -- There is a great need for Adopt-a-Family sponsors who wish to give in a personal way by providing gifts and food for one or more families as part of the Christmas Neighbors program of Jefferson.
“We have almost 50 families that wish to be adopted, but do not have sponsors,” a media release from Christmas Neighbors said. “A volunteer at our office at 920-674-4499 can give you information about the program and/or take your application. It is a wonderful way to get your family involved in Christmas ‘giving,’ or a way your business, friends, church, neighborhood, or organization can work together to provide for those that need help this year. Our office is open from 9 am.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday, through Dec. 1. You can also get more information on our website at www.christmasneighbors.org. Applications close Dec. 4.”
Persons who prefer to make a monetary donation should send a check to P.O. Box 177, Jefferson, or they may donate online at the website. “We also need new and used toys, hats, mittens, scarves, blankets, wrapping paper and used children’s clothing by Dec. 12,” the organization stated.
Christmas Neighbors is continuing to take applications for its toy program from low income families living in Jefferson County. Applications will close on Dec. 4 with distribution on Dec. 13.
