CL Jaycees enlist support for Share-A-Christmas

CRYSTAL LAKE – Families are available for adoption through the Crystal Lake Jaycees’ Share-A-Christmas program.

To participate, visit www.cljaycees.org.

This marks the 52nd year the Crystal Lake Jaycees have collected toys, books, clothing, food and cash donations through its Share-A-Christmas program. The goal is to brighten the holidays of families that recently have fallen on hard times and have not sought past assistance from the Jaycees.

This year’s program has 32 families with 87 children available for adoption.

There are a variety of adoption levels, ranging from a minimum suggested donation of $50 up to $350.

To select a family to adopt, click on the Share-A-Christmas link at www.cljaycees.org. Upon completion of the adoption registration form, donors will be sent their adopted family’s wish list and information about when and where to drop off the gifts.

For those unable to commit to adopting a family but who still would like to contribute to the program, tax-deductible donations can be addressed to the Illinois Jaycee Charitable Foundation, P.O. Box 7, Crystal Lake, IL 60039-0007.
