Dear Within Reach Families and community, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Within Reach is going to adopt-a-family for the holidays again this year!  They are a local family that live in Mission Viejo who need extra help this holiday season.  They have a daughter (age 1), a son (age 7) and a another daughter (age 5).This program is organized through South County Outreach, and they help over 400 families during the holiday season (plus assistance year-round for needy families).
