Christmas is right around the corner and there will be many families that are in need this year.

That's why the Adopt a Family for Christmas program is back. Presented by the Catholic Women's League and in conjunction with the Dauphin Food Bank and Angel Tree Program, you have the ability to help a family in need.

By getting in touch with Laverne Hudson, you can get a list of items that you can then purchase for a family in need. This includes groceries and gifts to make sure each and every family has a happy Christmas with their family.

Laverne has been involved in this program for 26 years and she says it's for a tremendous cause.

"It's such an amazing feeling to give a gift from you to a family," said Hudson. "Whether that be to a child or a mom or a dad, it's such a special feeling. I have had mothers cry in the past because they received a coupon for milk, that's just one of the things that have made it worthwhile for me, and for others as well."
