This pertains to the Adopt-A-Family Drive that is sponsored by the Salvation Army. Troop 412 has adopted a family of 11, 4 adults and 7 children, to sponsor this holiday season. Each patrol has been assigned 1 child to buy presents for, with every patrol but the first years also helping to chip in on another child. The children are Paula-Micheal (Every patrol but the first years is chipping in to help her), Guy-Leeland (First Years), Rain-Layton (Honey Badgers), Teo (Ravens), and Ryland-Maize (Knights). Please correct me as soon as possible if I have somehow listed your patrol for the wrong child. The children’s information, such as age, gender, clothing sizes, and etc., are listed on the document attached, as well as the gift suggestions for each child. The gifts should be about $10 each, and appropriate for the child. Also on THIS DOCUMENT, are the Guidelines for Adopt-A-Family, which I HIGHLY encourage everyone to read through before setting out on your own to buy the gifts for the family. The Old Dogs have volunteered to take care of the the Gift card, and the 2 other girls of this family. If an adult has money, but doesn’t have time to go out and buy gifts, Mr. Wohlford has volunteered to collect the money of those who don’t have time, and to go out and purchase gift cards for the family. We would like you guys to bring your gifts on Friday to the church, during either PIN Night, or the Lock-In, preferably before PIN Night, or during the Lock-In.
