Community Missions' Christmas program in need of sponsors

Each year, Community Missions matches more than 150 of Niagara County's neediest families with local businesses, church groups, service organizations and community members. These sponsors "adopt" the family and make holiday wishes comes true.

Community Missions is currently looking for individuals, businesses and groups interested in sponsoring one or more families from the community who desperately need help this holiday season.

In addition, the agency is in need of turkey and ham donations for its Thanksgiving and Christmas food distribution. Last year, around 300 turkeys or hams were distributed.
