Holiday Volunteer Opportunities


"Adopt a Family" for the Holidays

"Sharing From Your Heart" is a holiday program offered through the Probation Community Action Association (PCAA). PCAA is considered the "Heart" of Probation in serving at-risk and victim families and in helping to reduce youth crime and violence. Community members and local organizations are invited to "adopt a family" by purchasing items or making a monetary donation so that parents can select gifts for their families. Last year, 75 families were provided with clothing, food, toys, gifts and Christmas trees through the PCAA Adopt a Family "Sharing From Your Heart" program.
