Eagles, Pythians, Bell Angels and Fire District 44 Union 3186 adopt families to make a huge difference

November and December 2016 found many families in peril. Holiday time and no money for holiday dinners, let alone Christmas gifts. To the rescue, comes the Black Diamond Community Center’s own army of poverty-fighting helpers. The Black Diamond Eagles, Pythians, Bell Angels and Fire District 44 Union 3186 adopted families and provided food, toys and other holiday items that made Thanksgiving and Christmas special. All these groups also arrange for food delivery and asked about the family’s favorite food, ham or turkey, food allergies and how the family will be able to prepare the meal. These wonderful groups got all the details to make the holiday meals a success.

Many families were adopted because groups like the Eagles, Pythians, Bell Angels and Fire District 44 Union 3186 care enough to take the time to make the holidays better.

Thank you to all these groups and everyone associated with you.

Cheryl Hanson

Executive Director

Black Diamond Community Center
