For most of us, the holidays are a time of family celebration and happiness. For families torn apart by domestic violence or child abuse, the holidays are an ugly reminder of the pain and fear they are experiencing. To help make the holidays brighter for those troubled families, SOS is asking for your help to provides basic needs and small gifts to families during the holidays.
Families/individuals are eligible for adoption if they have worked with SOS consistently the last three months and do not qualify for assistance from the Salvation Army. SOS generally has 50 people for adoption within the six counties SOS serves: Chase, Coffey, Lyon, Greenwood, Morris and Chase.
If you are interested in adopting a family/individual or wish to donate money for gifts this holiday season, call SOS, 620-343-8799. The deadline to adopt a family is Dec. 11.
Unsure what to get your friends and relatives for the holidays? How about making a donation in their honor to SOS?
By making a donation, you select a handcrafted holiday card to send your special person letting them know you made a donation in their name to SOS to help stop sexual and domestic abuse, child abuse and neglect.
Cards will be available in front of Java Cat, 608 Commercial, during the Christmas Parade. They also will be available throughout December at Java Cat and the SOS Administrative Building, 618 Mechanic.
