Students with Christmas giftsColumbia Athletic Director Michael Leonard and School Social Worker Audra Di Bacco would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Adopt-a-Family program. With your help Columbia was able to adopt 52 families and provide much needed gifts and clothing to 155 people in this community.

“It is never easy to ask for help in times of need, and these families are beyond grateful for the generosity you all showed in helping them have a great holiday,” Mrs. Di Bacco said.
