Holiday Host a Family

December 23, 2015 4:05 PM

Every year the City of Madison looks forward to participating in the 'Host a Family' program for the holidays. Interested city agencies are assigned a family by Dane County Human Services. The agency then receives the family's wish list, collects donations within their department, and shops for gifts. Once the presents are gathered, staff come together to wrap them and prepare for delivery.

I was delighted to see that city agencies hosted about 21 families in total this year!  Thank you to all of the City of Madison staff who participated.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season!
