On Dec. 16, the second annual Adopt a Child for Christmas was held at St. Katharine Drexel Parish Center Dec. 16. This event brought Christmas to families enrolled in the Pregnancy Support Center of Dodge County who otherwise may not have had one. Children visited with Santa, and received multiple gifts. Photos were taken with Santa by Keith Glasgow of Glasgow Photography. Food was served and sponsored by Leroy Meats of Horicon with treats from Edith's Cakes and Catering.

Adopt a Child for Christmas was possible thanks go to the countless donors, and the Pregnancy Support Center volunteers, who blessed the children and their families this Christmas Season. First and foremost, a huge thank you goes to Alex Williams for initially creating this program in 2016. He, with help from his parents Bob and Krisan Williams of Marshfield, nearly doubled the size of the program in 2017.

Thank you to Brett Rechek and Rechek's Food Pride staff, along with Beaver Plumbing and Heating staff for displaying Christmas trees adorned with gift tags for each child. Patrons pulled a tag and donated gifts for a designated child. Thank you to all the gift donors throughout Dodge County, Marshfield, Stevens Point and Sheboygan Falls.
