Adopt a Family applications due November 8 

Dickinson County families who wish to participate in this year's Adopt a Family program with Upper Des Moines Opportunity should submit their application as soon as possible, with the deadline set for November 8. Outreach Specialist Deb Weir explains the application process for the holiday program.   "They just need to stop by our office and fill out an Adopt a Family form, and bring in 1 month's proof of income and all family information.  Then after we oversee everything and they're approved, we let them know, and then they're put in our list.  They go by number point as they come in.   We can go way over 100, so we still have a lot  that should come in and apply.  No one goes without."

For those wishing to adopt a family, the list may now be viewed on the weather page at, simply click on the Adopt a Family icon to see the list and guidelines.

The list is updated weekly.
