Have you adopted a family for the holidays?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 13, 2005
“Yes. Our church has a tree with ornaments that have what each family needs. I’ve been doing it since I was in high school.”
“I’ve never done it before. I usually just donate things to the Salvation Army and give money to the bell ringers.”
“No, not personally. Our church adopts a bunch of families, but we don’t adopt them individually. Everyone just brings in toys or money for the community fund and the church takes care of it.”
“Yeah, my church back home does it. People just bring in gifts or put in a couple dollars toward the things on the lists - whatever they can do.”
