Alderman Bob Fioretti, 2nd Ward, is reaching out to residents and businesses to make the holidays a little brighter for families in need. 

For the "Adopt-a-Family" drive in the 2nd Ward, Fioretti is asking pastors and community leaders to identify families in the 2nd Ward who don't have the financial resources for a very happy holiday. 

Each family member will be asked to list some "wishes" for much-needed gifts that would make their Christmas brighter. 

Though each family is different, many of the requests are simple: toys, household items and winter clothes. Regardless of the wish, 2nd Ward residents and businesses are asked to "Adopt-a-Family" and donate to the effort.  

Please contact Stacey Pfingsten in the 2nd Ward office at 312.263.9273, if you would like to take part in this program. She will provide you with more information about a family that is in need and available for adoption in this effort. Fioretti's office expects to give each family their presents during the week of December 16.
