Adopt-A-Family Update!


We finally have our 2 families that we are adopting for the holiday season!

There are a total of 5 kids between the families and they are excited to see Santa.  Below I have put a list of items that the families are requesting.  I am going to be contacting the families after Thanksgiving to pick out a delivery night for them.  When I know that I will know when the gifts are needed.  All donations from chapter members are appreciated but please do not feel like you have to contribute if you are unable.

If you have any questions or would like to drop off your gift or have me pick it up, please contact me.  We will be having a shopping night as well as a wrapping party at a TBD date.  Watch the Kazooan and the blog for more info.

As you’re shopping, please let me know what gifts you purchase  so that I can mark them off the list and update what we have, that would be great.  You can e-mail me at ecrashe@gmail.com.  Thanks!

[EDITOR’S NOTE: Please look at the BOTTOM of the list to see what membership has already purchased!]
