Would you like to
be a Samaritan Center Santa? We have many families with children 12 years
of age or younger that need adopting for Christmas. In the past, many of
the parents even needed coaxing to get them to share what they would like
because they wanted their childrenís needs and wants taken care of first.
As you know, adopting a family is more than rewarding.
With the help
and generosity from people like you, Samaritan Centerís Christmas
Adoption program has been extremely successful in helping to provide a
joyous Christmas for many families. In 2008, 37 seniors and 592 families were
adopted. With your help, we will again ensure a wonderful Christmas for
these children and their families.

October. All you need to do is fill out the

one) or senior. On the form, you need to indicate if you plan to deliver the gifts,
food, etc., or if the family should pick them up. Once you receive the
familyís information, you are free to communicate with them as needed.
