“Adopt” a child through the Holiday Helper program. Participants "adopting" a child will purchase gifts based on the child's top three wants and needs (valuing approximately $40) and return the items to Leadership and Service. Visit the Leadership and Service unit starting November 1 to "adopt" a child from the community.
