Salvation Army Needs You to Adopt-A-Family

By Katie Kozak. CREATED Nov 21, 2013

APPLETON -- The Fox Cities Salvation Army is asking for your help when it comes to helping others this holiday season.

The annual Adopt-A-Family program is seeing a spike in people need assistance. There are more than 900 families to sponsor this year, up from only about 600 last Christmas.

 "Families deserve a Christmas as well, and to come forth and sponsor those families, it's just wonderful to see every year, I'm always amazed. Always amazed," says Social Services Director Patrick Leigl.

You can adopt a family this year by contacting your local Salvation Army headquarters. For more information, click here.
