The Adopt-A-Family program is now accepting donations for families in the community.

The group can provide donors with the names of families that they can help directly by providing food and gifts or by donating gifts, toys and clothing to be distributed by the committee.

Either way families in the community in need will receive help, organizers say.

To get involved, people may contact Cleta Null, 636-742-2244, Debbie Kelley, 636-675-0444, or Brenda McDaniel, 636-271-5315.

Applications for families requesting assistance may be obtained at the Agape House, Meramec Valley Community School, Mission Community Church or by calling one of the above numbers.
