MIAMI (CBSMiami) – There are hundreds of people across South Florida counting their blessings this holiday season thanks to the generous donations of people who stepped forward to Adopt-A-Family for the holidays.
Children who otherwise might not have received any toys under the tree will be opening brand new gifts on Christmas morning and families will gather around the dinner table to enjoy a Christmas meal and that’s because South Florida stepped up to ease the burden of those in need. This holiday season, the Neighbors 4 Neighbors Adopt-A-Family program helped match more than 350 families. Now these families will truly enjoy the holidays the way they should be enjoyed.READ MORE: Crestview Towers Residents Gather To Protest Lack Of Work Being Done To Repair The Property
