The Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center seeks donors to brighten the holiday season for children, families and seniors in the northern Arizona foothills community.

The food bank is working with more than a dozen local organizations and churches to provide gifts, holiday meals and hope for those in crisis in the community.

The 13th annual Adopt-a-Family program will be held on Sunday, Dec. 13, at Holland Community Center in north Scottsdale, according to a press release. A second site for Black Canyon City and New River residents will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12 at High Desert Park.

Individual donors as well as donor groups such as businesses, HOAs, churches, and schools, are encouraged to participate in this year’s Adopt-a-Family program.

Interested donors determine the size of the family they are willing to adopt then a family wish list is provided as a shopping guide. Monetary donations also are accepted to support the program.

All gifts must be wrapped and delivered in December either directly to the family or dropped off at the event site, the release stated.

Checks are payable to Foothills Food Bank. All gifts and donations are tax deductible according to tax laws.
