If you're looking to help a family out for the holidays, there's still time to adopt a family in St. Joseph County.

The Salvation Army's annual Adopt-A-Family program is busy this year. Salvation Army officials in St. Joseph County tell us 1,600 families have signed up for their Christmas assistance programs this year, including Adopt-A-Family. That's a 12 percent increase over last year. But they've also seen a 30 percent increase in the number of people adopting families this year.

"During this season we get to see how much people offer and how much they choose to give back," said Liz Kurtz, the Salvation Army's social services director. "The other 10 months of the year we see a lot of it as well, but it's this season that people really shine."

You still have a week to adopt a family in St. Joseph County.

Fox 28 is a proud sponsor of the Adopt-A-Family program.
