The Extra Mile is looking to find people with a giving heart this holiday season for their Adopt A Family program.

Social workers have identified families in need of help this Christmas and are hopeful to find volunteers to play the part of gift giver this year.

Families have been chosen from the eight Acadiana parishes that The Extra Mile serves.

Wish lists compiled by the children will be handed off to volunteers with the task of gathering each specific gift.

Applications can be picked up and toys dropped off at the organizations office location at 720 St. John Street in Lafayette.

The Extra Mile hopes to have families adopted and gifts delivered by December 18.

Those interested in providing help this Christmas can go to the organization's Facebook page or by calling 237-2090.
