Due to high demand, the Desert Mission at HonorHealth John C. Lincoln Medical Center has begun its sign-ups for those wishing to help those less fortunate in the community for the holiday season.
Through the Adopt-A-Family program, community members purchase toys and a holiday meal for struggling neighbors; adopters can choose the size of the family they wish to serve. Adopters can then deliver the gifts to them directly or bring them to the Desert Mission Food Bank, 9229 N. 4th St., for the family to pick up.
In order to be matched with a family in time for the holidays, contact Desert Mission by Nov. 1. Call Lola Ortiz at the Desert Mission office to learn more: 602-870-6060, ext. 1345 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
