"Adopt-A-Family" for the Holidays
This year’s Adopt-A-Family program was a success with Homeless Prevention Council partnering with 35 volunteers and 160 family donors. Drop off for donated gifts and their storage was made easier this year by the use of the former Hearth & Kettle in Orleans as our very own “Santa Shop”. With the help of those donors and volunteers in our community, HPC was able to assist 136 local families with over 300 children. Families were able to pick up their children’s gifts at the Hearth & Kettle as well as wrap them on December 16th. Some children also asked for a bike and Mid-Cape Home Centers facilitated the delivery of over 30 bikes.
