GL Homes Donates $5K for the Adopt-A-Family Program

GL Homes presented the Caridad Center with a check for $5,000.  The donation will go toward the Adopt-A-Family Program, which will benefit many of Caridad's families during Christmas.  

Families that are registered with the Caridad Center complete an application to participate in the Adopt-A-Family program.  These families will be adopted by members of the community, corporations, hospitals, girl scout troops, etc.  The people that "adopt" these families will buy the gifts the families have asked for on their application and drop them off at the Caridad Center. 

If you are interested in the Adopt-A-Family Program, please contact Scarlett Fave at sfave@caridad.org or 561-737-6336 x115.
