OKLAHOMA CITY -

This holiday season, many families are in need. That's why Sunbeam Family Services in Oklahoma City will hold its "Adopt-A-Family" program.

As part of the annual program, the agency has collected wish lists from nearly 200 families currently served through Sunbeam's Counseling, Early Childhood Education, Foster Care and Senior Services Programs.

"This is a very special time of year, but it can be tough for many families that we serve," said Kelli Dupuy, Director of Marketing and Development at Sunbeam. "For many of our clients, they have a difficult time providing basic necessities for their families and themselves, so holiday gifts are obviously the last thing on the list."

Many wishes include winter coats, learning toys and blankets. Sunbeam will collect gifts through December 13. Gifts can be dropped off at Sunbeam Family Services, located at 616 N.W. 21st Street in Oklahoma City.

"We are asking the community to help in granting these holiday wishes for our families," said Dupuy. "Year after year, the Oklahoma City community continues to be so generous to the children, families and seniors we serve, not only during the holidays, but throughout the year."

Gifts must be new items, unwrapped, and their value to not exceed $35 to $50 per each member of the family.
