A chance to help

NEW HAVEN — More than 100 homeless and formerly homeless individuals and families in temporary shelters, transitional and supportive housing programs within New Have Home Recovery, Inc., will celebrate the holidays under the Adopt-a-Family Program, organizers said.
Many people already have been adopted but the agency still has families and individuals available. With support, all of the agency’s residents will be able to celebrate the holidays, organizers said. All donations will be acknowledged and are fully tax-deductible and donors will receive a profile of the individual or family they adopt.
Donation ideas include blankets, clothes, dishes, toys and books. For those unable to adopt-a-family, gift certificates in any amount for clothing and other stores are appreciated.
For information call (204) 492-4866 or e-mail
