The Family Resource Center is asking the community to help with its Christmas basket and gift giveaway to families in need this holiday season. Sponsors have been found for most of the 80 families the center has adopted, but more help is needed.
Each basket costs between $60 to $75 and is filled with many necessities for daily living such as toiletries, cleaning supplies, canned goods, nonperishable food and paper products. These baskets allow recipients to divert their income toward providing a Christmas celebration for their families. Assistance in any form would be greatly appreciated.
To make a donation and for more information call the Family Resource Center at (530) 542-0740.
Booster club to wrap gifts
