The holidays can be a tough and stressful time for many struggling families in the St. Cloud area. Catholic Charities of St. Cloud is asking for your spreading joy by adopting a family over the holidays as part of their annual 'Share The Spirit' program.

Share the Spirit will pair you with a needy family who has been nominated by a social worker or education professional from the area.

When you adopt a family, you'll be given a list of three wishes and three needs for each person in their household. You're asked to spend a minimum of $70 per family member. This breaks down to $60 for gifts and $10 for a grocery gift card.

Gifts need to be wrapped and delivered to the Sauk Rapids Government Center by Monday, Dec. 9 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

If you've got questions, you can contact Eric Vollen at eric.vollen@ccstcloud.org.
