All of the families have been adopted for 2016.
For the past 23 years, hundreds of Saint Louis County Government employees in dozens of different departments and divisions have taken the lead to provide food, clothing, toys, household items, help with rent and utilities for over 3,600 needy county families during the Holidays.
Each year, county employees are joined by businesses, faith-based groups and private citizens to make this worthwhile effort a success.
The Department of Human Services (DHS) provides the staff support to coordinate the project. A catalog of families and their needs is compiled and maintained by DHS.
