Each year LAFS has been able to give gifts to people in our community that struggle at Christmas time. We are able to do this through the support of our community. In November we ask the people of Lonsdale if they wish to "adopt" a family and provide all or some of the Christmas gifts for a family in need. We provide the donors a few details about their "adopted" family such as number of people, ages of children, and genders so the donors can shop for them. In the week before Christmas we distribute the donated gifts to the families. This program is very appreciated by the clients that LAFS receives numerous thank you letters, smiles and tears of joy when the Moms and Dads pick up their gifts.
With your generousity we can gave gifts to about 100 people each year!
