[December 21, 2013]  The Salvation Army Keest Center in Lincoln was the site of the annual Adopt-a-Family Christmas party on Thursday evening. Adopt-a-Family is a Salvation Army program that pairs families with sponsors who want to make sure the children have something under the Christmas tree.

This year almost 20 families took part in the program, up from nine families last year. This is the second year that the program has been part of the Lincoln Christmas season.

"Sponsors for the families come from three local groups," said Tony Shuff, Salvation Army director for Logan and Mason County. "We get partners from churches, businesses and families who want to help out."

This year the families enjoyed a visit with Santa, as well as cookies and hot chocolate.
