The NHS Key Club has always helped run Adopt A Child. This year, the officers of Key Club have decided to adopt two children for the holidays, and will be hosting the annual drop off day on Dec. 14. During the drop off day, volunteers and Key Club members gather together to pack the gifts in large bags and prepare them for transport to Fisherman’s mark.
Adopt A Child for The Holidays is for children in the New Hope and Lambertville area, whose families cannot afford presents. The presents will be purchased by volunteers, who pick presents based off the child’s “wish list.” Their “wish list” has a list of things the child wants for their holiday. The suggested amount of money for one child is $150. People are suggested to spend this much so that many unfortunate children can have a great holiday season. These people are not supposed to wrap the gifts because the committee at Fisherman’s Mark will be taking care of them to make sure they are appropriate. The gifts will be delivered on Dec. 14, by volunteer parents and Key Club members after school.At the time recorded, 228 children have been adopted for the holidays out of 233, which is really amazing. These children just want to have a great holiday season, and now they can. They will be forever grateful when they see so many presents for them under their trees.
