Things just got a little brighter for 20 area families.

Every year at Shores, fifth-hour teachers are given the option to participate in Adopt-a-Family, an organization in which a class is given a family in need to buy gifts for during the holiday season.

Along with fifth-hour classes, school clubs/groups, and local businesses collected money and gifts to give their family a memorable Christmas, said Lori Foley, the director of Shores’ Adopt-a-Family.

Some groups, such as Student Senate and The National Honor Society, even came together after school to wrap their presents.

“It was a really eye-opening experience to help a family who isn’t as fortunate as I am during the Christmas time,” junior Leslie Ewalt said. “National Honor Society adopted a family that has four kids. We were able to gather a huge number of gifts for them and hopefully make it the best holiday season for them.”
