Letter: Thanks for Adopt-a-Family success

Dallas Adopt a Family, a long-standing program, provides families with gifts and food through gracious community donors who “adopt” families for Christmas.

This previous year, we are happy to announce that 189 families applied, and all were adopted. This achievement would not have been possible without the help of an entire community who came together and rose to the occasion once again. Our churches, local businesses, schools, civic groups, and volunteers opened their hearts by donating financial resources and giving their time.

On Dec. 14-15, families arrived to the Evangelical Bible Church to pick up their gifts and food. Their smiles, gratitude, and in some cases tears, reminded us all that the long days of planning and preparation paid off, but most importantly it reminded us all that we are all connected.

We hope that everybody involved knows how much we thank their continued hard work and kindness over the years. Our hope is that together we continue to serve our community for many years to come. We sincerely thank you, and look forward to 2016.
