The Christmas season is here with all the excitement, anticipation and opportunities to share your blessings with others. The STC Adopt-A-Family committee is here to help. Everyone "adopted" is from the S.T.C. School district, so you really are helping your neighbor.
This is a wonderful opportunity to share as you can with those who currently have little by:
Adopting an individual or an entire family and purchasing gifts for them. "Wishmas Trees" with name tags (each coded for confidentiality) and gift suggestions are located at Shopko Hometown (Highway 63, Toledo) and State Farm Insurance (High St., Toledo).

Purchasing food certificates for the holidays meals.
Make cash donations for the purchase of gifts or food certificates. Checks may be made payable to "STC Adopt-A-Family".
The purchased gifts, food certificates and cash donations need to be delivered to the Toledo Cleaners, Shopko or State Farm Insurance by Monday, December 10th for distribution on the 14th. The goal is for each individual to receive a gift and each family to receive a food certificate.
With the generous support of individuals, organizations and businesses, the S.T.C. Adopt-A-Family committee has been able to brighten the holidays for approximately 100 families each year for more than 20 years.
The committee is composed entirely of community volunteers: Lois and Lenny Hogendorn, Cletus Miller, Dan and Micki Ferris, Kyle and Lois Chaska, Bonnie Bower, Cindy Roth, Margaret Scharnweber, Mary Jo Mullin, Adam Andersen and Jodi Rowe.
If you have any questions, please give one of them a call.
