Christmas Adopt a Family  

The Law School is adopting a family through Saint Vincent de Paul. The family has 5 children with twins on the way. 

Student service chair Maggie Adams is coordinating the donations. She has created a spreadsheet, linked here. The spreadsheet lists the Christmas wishes for each child along with a price estimation for the gift. If you would like to be responsible for a particular item, please highlight it and list your name under the gift. If you would prefer to donate to the Christmas adoption generally, she can allocate funds for additional gifts, and for a grocery store gift card for the family. 

Please contact Maggie with any questions, madams20@nd.edu.
