When the Ravenswood Adopt-A-Family Screening Committee met for its meeting, they screened and reviewed 26 new applications. Three of the new ones were put on “hold” for further investigation by the Screening Committee members.

Financial assistance has come from S.O.A.R. 5668, $200, and a donation of $100 in memory of Dean Carter.

Church groups, individuals or organizations who would like to adopt one or more families for Christmas can contact Sally Carter at 304-273-9897 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Due to COVID-19 concerns, only new items will be accepted again this year. Do not drop any bags of used items off at the Ravenswood Fire Department.
