‘Christmas Families’ donations needed to help those in need this holiday season

It’s that time of year again to help out brightening the holiday spirit for those families in need this season.

The Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood District Association has selected two anonymous families in need to receive donated Christmas gifts for 2011 Ardenwald Christmas Families program.

Donations are being accepted until Sunday, December 18, 2011, and the donations will be delivered later in the week to the families before Christmas Day.

How do you donate?

Go to the Ardenwald Christmas Families web page at www.ardenwald.org/christmasfam and browse at the “wish list.” The “wish list” page updates frequently and any items on the list means that item is still needed. Items no longer on the list means the item has been arranged by another donator to be donated.

To drop off the donation(s), contact Lisa Gunion-Rinker at 503-659-7807 to make arrangements. You can also drop off the item at the Ardenwald Holiday Potluck at the Ardenwald Elementary School in Milwaukie on Tuesday, December 13, 6:30 p.m.

Please contact Lisa Gunion-Rinker at 503-659-7807 with any questions you have about the Ardenwald Christmas Families program or with the donations.
