Key Club members Emma Singer & Kristina Degiovanni

This year’s Adopt-a-Child Program was a huge success with 274 children “adopted” for the holidays. The program, which is sponsored by New Hope-Solebury High School’s Key Club and Fisherman’s Mark of Lambertville, NJ, asks students and community members to donate money and gifts for children in need during the holiday season. With the Key Clubs’ promotion and encouragement, high school homerooms raised enough money to adopt seventeen children. Many Key Club members assisted the program’s leaders, Terri Randol, Susan Brussock, and Kathy Mlynarski, by helping to organize the gifts on drop-off day and then delivering them to Fisherman’s Mark.

Since 1996, the Adopt-a-Child program receives lists of children in need from Fisherman’s Mark, school counselors, nurses, teachers, social workers, and the Woods Services in Langhorne.
