LENAWEE COUNTY, MI (Toledo News Now) -

A local charity is working to make sure everyone has food on their table and presents under the tree this holiday season.

Registration just opened for those in need at Associated Charities of Lenawee County. The director there says they plan to help more than 200 families this year.

The donations are already coming in, and families in need can now register for help this holiday season. Every year, the organization provides families with a food basket and gifts for the children.

"They leave with smiles, and then I get lots of cards and telephone calls on the happy holidays that they had because of Associated Charities of Lenawee, and that's all due to the generous donations of the community," said Director Delight Creech.

Those in need can register at the Associated Charities of Lenawee office before Nov. 26. Be sure to bring an ID, proof of income, proof of residency and birth certificates of any children. Their hours are Tuesday and Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and Wednesday from noon until 6 p.m.

To adopt a family for Christmas, contact the organization at 517-265-7255. They are also accepting donations of new toys and non-perishable food until Dec. 13.
