General rules and guidelines:
As a participant in Adopt a Family, we hope you will:
- learn about the agency you're "adopting" through-- specifically who they serve and the services they provide.
- reflect on and express what compels you as an individual (and us as a CLU community) to lead the way and adopt 50+ families and children this holiday season.
- think about and celebrate the various ways that this program may impact the various participants-- from the adopters to the adoptees, and perhaps even our local economy.
