St. Mike's Adopts Three Families for the Holidays
Since its inception, Save Our Selves (SOS) has been linking generous community members with families in need of extra support during the holidays. This is the 49th year of the Share Our Selves annual Adopt A Family Program. This wonderful holiday tradition supports many struggling Orange County families by providing gifts and food for the holidays. This year, the Adopt A Family Program will connect donors with more than 1,400 families with children recommended by Costa Mesa and Santa Ana organizations and schools.
We will be adopting three families again this year. I will have family information soon and we have until December 10th to collect gifts/money/gift cards. There are also Volunteer Opportunities available directly through the Share Ourselves AAF website.
Details to follow but you can start picking up gift cards for grocery stores, Walmart and Target ($25 and $50 denominations) as those are always requested! And we will have signups again this year for the big ticket items like bikes and clothes and household items.
