HRLC Adopts a Lov Family

adopt a family
One of the ways we try to foster community this time of year is through our Adopt a Family for Christmas Ministry. Our Holy Redeemer community has been adopting families at Christmas for years! And this year we will continue this tradition. 
 
Hope and joy – along with toys, clothing and meals – have been brought to families with children, seniors and veterans’ during the season that is supposed to be the happiest time of the year. We do not set a minimum expectation as to what you will provide for the family, however we ask that you be as generous as possible. 
 
We receive a wishlist from the family we adopt, it is meant to be a guide in helping us to give the items that are truly needed or desired in order to give these families a reason to rejoice on Christmas Day. 
 
We sincerely hope you will join us in this tradition, contact the office today to find out how you can help!

Thank you for being a part of what makes our community so great at the holiday and throughout the rest of the year—coming together to honor the best in each other. We can’t wait to meet you or see you again this December!
