Shop for families and seniors in need as you shop for holiday gifts

There are plenty of families and seniors who need brighter holidays. Black Friday or Cyber Monday is the perfect time to shop for the family or senior that you agree to adopt for the 2016 holidays.

Individuals and groups interested in adopting a family or senior should complete the registration form no later than Friday, Dec. 9.

The Office of Work, Life and Engagement partners with local nonprofit and social service agencies to provide gifts, clothing, and/or grocery gift certificates to families, children, seniors, and adults with disabilities who are in need of assistance during the holiday season.
