Catholic Charities of Schuyler County is requesting donations to help people in need during the holiday season.
Those interested in adopting a family should contact Catholic Charities to be matched with a family. Gifts and food donations should then be dropped off at Schuyler Outreach by Dec. 15.
Catholic Charities also welcomes donations of new or gently used toys and gifts (no stuffed animals) for families that are not adopted. Gifts for children, teenagers and adults can be dropped off through Dec. 8 at Schuyler Outreach, 112 Tenth St., Watkins Glen, on Tuesdays from 9 a.m to 2 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m.; Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Fridays from noon to 4 p.m.
