The Adopt-A-Family Program sponsored by the Cumberland County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section has been a great success for the past twelve years. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we were still able to bring some much-needed good cheer to our local community as we again teamed up with Safe Harbour, the Domestic Violence Shelter of Cumberland & Perry County and other organizations to provide holiday cheer to families residing in shelters, as well as those families unable to afford the holidays themselves. At the request of our local shelters, we provided gift cards for the residents to do their own holiday shopping instead of our traditional delivery of physical gifts. (pictured are the 2019 event)
