Serra community raises more than $13,000 for Adopt-a-Family



Many thanks to our outstanding Serra community for making the holidays a little bit easier for 19 local families. We adopted 14 families from the Redwood City Catholic Worker House and five families from Northern Valley Catholic Social Service. In addition, several groups donated to people who were affected by the fires in Butte County.

In all, this year's gift cards donations totaled $7,920. Members of our community also gave $2,759 in cash and about $3,000 in in-kind donations.

"We would like to thank everyone for their awesome support of the Adopt-a-Family Christmas drive," said Christian Service Coordinator Christian Cahill. "It was such an overwhelming success! both communities were so grateful to receive such an abundance of gifts and contributions."
