Douglas County agencies are hoping residents adopt a family in need for Christmas.

Donors are asked to provide a new clothing outfit for each family member, gift items for the household, and a gift card for a holiday meal. Adopters may request a certain family size and composition.

Organizations, businesses or individuals interested in adopting families can contact any of these nonprofit agencies:

• Ballard Community Services, 708 Elm, 842-0729.

• Salvation Army, 946 N.H., 843-4188.

• East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corporation, 2518 Ridge Court, 841-3357.

• Douglas County Senior Services, 745 Vt., 842-0543.

Last year, nearly 900 families were adopted.
