Adopt a Family & Gift Programs

Adopt a Family & Gift Programs

One of the most rewarding and meaningful ways to share in the holiday season is by “adopting” a family — which basically means buying both gifts and essentials for a needy family that has registered through a local agency. Because of my own family’s generations-deep history with the L.A. Archdiocese, we’ve adopt a family through […]
