This will be the 27th year that the Host-A-Family organization will provide a link between those who would are in need, with those who have the means to give.

With your help, the holidays will be a little brighter for more than 300 families whose children who often go without in Stoughton, Oregon and McFarland.

This year, consider sharing joy by logging onto hostafamily.org and sponsoring a family, making a monetary donation, or volunteering to help distribute gifts this December.

Thank you for acting locally to support others in a worthy, meaningful and tangible way.
