PUEBLO, Colo. - Thanks to St. Mary-Corwin and Southern Colorado Family Medicine, Thursday was a happy day for some needy families.
For nearly 20 years, SCFM has held its Adopt-a-Family gift drive to benefit families in need of extra assistance during the holidays.
This year, SCFM was able to donate gifts, clothes, and essential items to 15 deserving families.
Throughout the year, the organization observes their patients and compiles a list of those they believe are eligible to receive gifts.
“I was surprised. I had no idea anything like this happens. And I just feel really blessed and really grateful. I was expecting one present each. I didn't expect all of this," said Sandra Romero.
Romero added that she hopes to one day be able to give back to other families in need.
