BBBS Looking For Participants For Adopt A Family Program

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fond du Lac County is looking for people to adopt a family during the holidays. Executive Director Tammy Young says, “Our goal is to help 100 families this year.” She says businesses, families, clubs or organizations are needed to give the gift of Christmas to a family in need. She notes last year they were able to help 65 families, up from 34 in 2013. Anyone interested in adopting a family can select the size of the adopted family.  Anyone interested in helping is asked to call the BBBS office at 922-8200.  To avoid a duplication of services, only those families in need who are not adopted through the Salvation Army, Department of Social Services or another area human service organization are eligible to participate.
