Transition House is inviting members of the community to become “Secret Santas” for homeless children and their families.

Family members, friends, businesses, churches, schools, co-workers and individuals can “adopt” a family or child to ensure that the holiday season is a memorable one for the less fortunate members of the community.

Gift wish lists will be available Monday, but call now to reserve your place to help a family or child.
