Adopt a FamilyDecember 20, 2017
We were all really excited to help an incredible family during Christmas. We adopted a family of 6 who was in need and to say they have a hard life is an understatement. We got the four kids everything from toy cars, to soccer clothes and equipment, watches, school clothes and a purse. The parents got gift cards to Target, restaurants and grocery stores, along with a few personal gifts as well. We are all so fortunate to do what we do and we wish we can give back even more, but on Christmas, we at least made a difference for this family. To learn more about Adopt A Family, go to this link and help in any way you can.
