Adopt a Family program continues to accept donations

FLINT — Shelter of Flint’s Adopt a Family program is seeking additional donors to provide holiday gifts for women and children in the Emergency Shelter program. Homelessness and need do not take a break for the holidays and this program truly makes a difference in the lives of these families.

The gifts these families receive will make the holiday season a little brighter. These families are taking the steps needed to achieve stable housing, but while struggling, there just aren’t enough resources to provide holiday gifts. Gifts to a Shelter of Flint family will help to bridge the gap from hopeless to hopeful — bringing joy this holiday season.

For more information, or to be matched with a family, please call Meg Sprecher, Development Assistant, at 810-238-4711, ext. 305 to be matched with a family.

The family’s information, including their first name, age, gender, and sizes, along with their wish list (with no one item valued at more than $30) will be sent to you. — G.G.
