Holidays usually mean gathering with friends and extended family, attending parties, hosting dinners, traveling, and celebrating time-honored customs. Christmas cheer. Watching your children’s faces light up when they open their presents. It is not like that for all of us…there’s always somebody going through a hard time. Possibly due to illness, financial worries, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic where plans are going to look a lot different than usual, or some other set of circumstances. That’s why this year, we are asking anyone who would like to Adopt-a-Family or Child for the holiday season to call The Children’s Center. There are a number of compelling reasons to Adopt-a Family or Child during the holidays. For one, it’s truly a feel-good endeavor. What could be a better way to celebrate the holidays than by assuring that less fortunate children are able to have a wonderful day too? Secondly, it is a special way to celebrate the spirit of the season and share joy with others. Finally, don’t forget that the power of giving and helping others in times of stress can give you a health boost as well!
