Caring & Sharing Christmas program seeks applicants
The Caring & Sharing Christmas program is now taking applications.
The program's goals are to assist families during the holiday season by providing food baskets, gifts for children 16 and under and to match organizations and/or individuals who are in a position to help by purchasing a few gifts for those families in need.
Individuals or 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 noon Wednesday, Nov. 18. 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 on how to adopt a family, can do so by calling Mahube at 732-7204.
The information about adoptive families will be distributed the week before Thanksgiving. Distribution for all families will be held Friday, Dec. 18 at St. Peter's the Apostle Catholic Church in Park Rapids.
