Deadline extended to apply for Adopt a Family Program 

Upper Des Moines Opportunity has extended the deadline to apply for the Adopt A Family Program:

Outreach Specialist Catie Cattrysse explains.  "So, we're extending our deadline from November 13 to December 1, just to make sure anyone and any family that would like to be adopted will still be able to have the time to come  and pick up an application and return it to us.  So we just want to give you more time to get your application in to make sure that your family is taken care of for Christmas."

She adds that anyone interested should apply as soon as possible.  "Everything is anonymous so there's no need to feel embarrassed by asking for that help because it's not technically help, it's us and the community wanting to give to families that aren't financially able to spend the money that they want to on their family for Christmas.  Our community has always been absolutely wonderful about it and we have people calling in almost every day wanting to adopt a family, whether it be just themselves or for their youth group."
