Adopt A Family
The local Adopt-a-Family Christmas Program has made a joyful Christmas a reality for area families every year since 2002 thanks to the Family Intervention Team (FIT) Foundation.  Families served have been identified by county Agencies, Departments and schools as being among their neediest.  Once referred to the Program, families are    matched anonymously with donors who receive specific information about the familyís needs and wishes to help them shop for meaningful Christmas gifts.

For the eighth year, the United Methodist churches in our Circuit will be providing the coordination and support for this Program.  There are many opportunities for members of our church to get personally involved in the Adopt-a-Family Christmas Program so please consider the following:
1) Stop at the Adopt-a-Family table in the narthex on Sunday, November 12 (between services and after second service) to select a tag with the name and number of an individual family member along with their specific toy, clothing, or household item request.  Shop for this individual and bring back their gift, wrapped for Christmas and tagged with their name and family number, by Sunday, December 3.
2) Make a monetary donation by check made payable to the FIT Foundation and mail it to FIT Foundation, P.O. Box 544, Yuba City CA 95992. Donations through the FIT Foundation are tax deductible.
3) Provide an unwrapped new toy or new children's by Sunday, December 3 for use as needed.

4) Sign up to assist in wrapping general donations received by the Program.

Wrapping parties are planned here at the church on Tuesday, November 28 at 1:00 PM and Monday, December 4 at 1:00 PM.
