Adopt a Family assists those in need
Whitman's 2017 Adopt a Family drive generated gifts for more than 40 families in the community that Blue Mountain Heart to Heart and The Health Center had identified as needing extra support this holiday season. The estimated value of these gifts totals over $4,000, according to Community Service Coordinator Abby Juhasz. About 30 volunteers also gathered to wrap the gifts.
