Elkhart Salvation Army receives big Adopt-A-Family numbers

ELKHART, Ind. -- The Salvation Army of Elkhart wants to thank families for helping some of theirs.

This year, 105 families in all have been adopted by generous members of the community.

ABC 57 talked with one woman who's done this for two years straight and she said she's just happy she can help others.

"I think there will be a lot of families that are blessed this year because of this program," said Tina Helvey. "It feels good to see that I'm making a difference but a whole lot of other people are too in the community."

The adopted families will pick up their presents this Friday.
