Are you looking for a way to help bring some joy to others this Christmas? Ramsey County MN has developed a program named, Adopt a Family in Need. This family sponsorship program serves families in Ramsey County that need extra help with food and gifts this Christmas. Some families are refugees while others are single parents or grandparents struggling to provide necessities for the children in their care.

We feel this program is a worthwhile opportunity to help and bring some light into lives that may be going through some darkness. With a very affordable budget of $30-$50 per family member, a few hundred dollars can certainly change the lives and maybe bring some hope to Minnesotans in need.

You still have time to participate as families will be assigned in mid-November. So if you are interested please contact Ramsey County volunteer services at 651-266-4090, or For additional information on the program, visit Adopt A Family In Need.

We are all precious in God’s eyes and this is a simple way for all of us to spread the love of God to those in need this Christmas season.
