“Dear PoP,

In college every year my sorority would always do an “angel tree” fundraiser type thing around christmas where we would have the opportunity to sort of adopt children and adults from different families and fulfill their christmas wishlists. I remember one year I had an elderly woman who asked for things like slippers, and a warm blanket, and then another year I had a brother and sister who asked for small toy gifts as well as socks and things like that…Is there anything like that in the district, a little more personal than the toys for tots drives, etc.?”

We had a similar question in early Nov. about adopting a family and some good recommendations were left here. If anyone has other recommendations/suggestions please leave contact info in the comments here.
