People drop off gifts to the Salvation Army in South Bend


Friday was the drop off day for the Salvation Army's Adopt a Family program in St. Joseph County.  Cars dropped off loads of packages to the Kroc Center to be organized for Saturdays distribution.

The Social Services Director for the Salvation Army of St. Joseph County, Libby Unruh said it is a busy, fun day at the Kroc Center.  "It's so exciting," Unruh said, "just because we get to see all of the things people bring, we finally get to meet the adopters face to face and share in their excitement for all of the things that they have gotten their families for Christmas."

First time Adopt a Family participate, Kerry Bonk said she had a really good time participating in the program.  "It is awesome," Bonk said. "Because it is going to a good cause and we all take for granted the things that we have on a day to day basis, and knowing that this is going to bring so much joy to these people is amazing."
