Applications being accepted for Upper Des Moines Opportunity Adopt a Family Program (1) 

Applications are now being accepted for The Upper Des Moines Opportunity Adopt a Family Program.

Outreach Specialist Catie Cattrysse says, the program helps brighten the holidays for those in need.  "Our Adopt a Family Program is for eligible low-income families that aren't able to always get the things for their kids that they want to be able to, and we try to help with that.  We have a lot of wonderful donors that make it possible for us to do this.  You know, we try to help as many families and children as possible, just because, Christmas is one of those time you want to give as much as you can, and sometimes you financially aren't able to."

She notes that families wishing to participate should pick up an application at the UDMO office.  "All you have to do is stop by our office, our hours are 8-4, Monday through Friday.  We have our applications up at the front and all you have to do is ring our doorbell, we'll hand you an application and it has a list of things that you'll need to bring back with the application, and then we just take of the rest."

Applications will be accepted through November 13th.

NOTE:  Families remain anonymous with the program.
