2020 Adopt-A-Family Presented by Community Action Agency. Community Action Agency is seeking support for their 2020 Adopt-a-Family Campaign, to help make the holidays a little brighter for those who face the prospect of being unable to celebrate the season. Secure financial contributions can be made by clicking on the “Donate” button on the CAA website (www.caajlh.org) and then selecting “Adopt-a-Family Holidays 2020” from the drop-down menu. For those who still wish to shop, a list for an identified family will be provided by CAA. The families waiting to be adopted are from CAA’s tri-county service area which includes Jackson, Lenawee, and Hillsdale counties. Those wishing to adopt a family may make a secure donation through the “Donate” button on the CAA website (www.caajlh.org) or may also contact Steve York at (517) 539-8310 or by email at: email@example.com. Due to COVID-19, CAA is modifying the program this holiday season. In-person operations will be limited. If you would still like to adopt a family in the traditional way, this option may be available on a limited basis.
