Christmas Adopt-A-Family Program

Nearly 20% of Douglas County residents struggle to meet even the basic needs of food and shelter. Parker Task Force now helps hundreds of families stay in their homes with working utilities and enough food to feed everyone in their household. The volunteers at PTF pour a tremendous amount of time and love into this work. We all know that it is not enough. We rely on the wonderful citizens in our community to help us out with donations of food and money and you do! The incredible generosity and giving spirit is a constant source of joy for all of us.
