Holiday Hope is a rewarding way to celebrate the spirit of giving through the holiday season. Last year, more than 100 families received meals, toys, and warm clothing through the program. With support from the community this holiday season, these organizations hope to again provide relief to families who face every day challenges, job loss, or unexpected hardships. Families can be adopted by a group of friends, business, family or individuals. Adopting a family will help provide warm clothing, food and toys to families that would otherwise go without. Each family is carefully paired with a donor or donor group and it is up to the donorandamp;#8217;s discretion as to how much to contribute. Gifts are due Dec. 16 and will be delivered to the family a week prior to the holidays. For more information about Holiday Hope or to adopt a family, please call Ana Liz Servin Bancroft at 530-546-0952 or Cecilia Morales at 530-546-7804.
