YMF - Families Helping Families Adopt-A-Family


By: Izzy Loh

This holiday season ASCE OC YMF and CH2M Hill’s Jump partnered together to adopt a family. Every year the Child Abuse Prevention Center (CAPC) puts together “Families Helping Families,” where the community can make the holidays a carefree and happy time for those escaping poor/dangerous conditions. Over the span of a month the two groups collected donations and gifts. On the 13th of December, Christmas came early and all the gifts collected for the family were delivered. It was an incredible feeling taking care of a deserving families holiday. The expression on the lit up children's faces were priceless.
