"Here in this last week, people have really stepped up and started adopting," said Executive Director, Penny Adams.
With more than 900 families looking for assistance this year through the Adopt-A-Family program, Executive Director Penny Adams and her crew had their work cut out for them.
But even last minute, they're finding ways to take care of every family.
"It's difficult not knowing if you're kids are going to have Christmas, so we'd like to give them the word as soon as possible so they can stop worrying," said Adams.
And even during the final days before Christmas morning, volunteers know the importance of lending a hand this season.
"I think it's important for the people who don't get presents, to get presents for them," said Taytum Banks, volunteer.
"We've got volunteers doing deliveries to the families that can't make it out to the office. We've got some other volunteers in here wrapping and getting ready for other gifts to go out," said Adams.
After months of planning, many long hours and a last minute scramble to reach those in need, the AFL-CIO announced that all families have been adopted.
"So I'm thrilled to death, we couldn't ask for a better Christmas," said Adams.
This Christmas season had the largest number of families applying for help in more than ten years.
But with every family accounted for this holiday, the AFL-CIO continues to improve the lives of the families in their community.
