NHS adopt-a-family program needs donors

 West Side & Black Rock-Riverside Neighborhood Housing Services is once again hosting a Christmas season adopt-a-family program.
 NHS matches needy families with donors, which can be businesses, organizations or private families. The State Employees Federal Credit Union, for example, has already adopted 15 families, according to NHS Executive Director Linda Chiarenza.
 Needy families create a wish list, which NHS gives to donors to fulfill. Donors are asked to gift-wrap the donations.
 People or organizations looking to adopt a family can contact NHS at 885-2344.
