Bancroft and Area’s Adopt-A-Child committee is gearing up to lend a helping hand.

The program, which is held by Kids-in-Need, are holding registration for their annual winter snowsuit program in North Hastings. They say the program is designed to help children who are part of financially struggling families. They say last year over 150 children received warm winter clothing thanks to the program. They say it was due to donations from individuals, businesses and organizations in North Hastings and beyond.

KIN says the program is available to those residing in Bancroft or in the townships of Hasting Highlands, Highlands East, Carlow-Mayo, Wollaston, Limierick & Cashel and Faraday. They say registrations must be completed in person by a caregiver or parent. KIN also says that charity receipts are available for donars.

There are two locations to register for the program. The first is at North Hastings Children’s Services, September 23rd-27th 9 AM till 5:30 PM and the 28th from 9 AM till noon. A second registration location will be held at the Bancroft Pregnancy Care Centre September 23rd to the 26th from 9 AM till 3 PM.
