Caring & Sharing accepting applications
The Caring & Sharing Christmas Program is now taking applications.
This program has three goals:
n To assist families during the holiday season by providing food baskets.
n To assist Hubbard County families by providing gifts for children 14 and under.
n To match organizations and/or individuals who are in a position to help by purchasing a few gifts for those families in need.
Individuals/families who wish to obtain help must pick up an application and complete the necessary forms for assistance at Mahube Community Council located at 120 North Central Ave. in Park Rapids.
The deadline to apply is 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14. All family names are kept confidential among collaborative organizations and are matched to prevent duplication of service.
Any organization or individual who would like to obtain information about how to adopt a family can do so by calling Mahube Community Council at 732-7204.
The information about adoptive families will be distributed the week before Thanksgiving.
The distribution for all families will be held Friday, Dec. 16 at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Park Rapids.
The Caring & Sharing Christmas Program is a joint effort among Mahube Community Council, the Park Rapids Antique Tractor Club, the Hubbard County Food Shelf and Patty Harsha.
