Once again Betty Ingell and Sharon Cunial matched families with volunteer agencies, organizations, and individuals that adopted families and are providing items to fulfill the hopes and dreams of more than 288 children. Thirty-seven more children more children than last year.  Thank you to the entire Manteca Community for being a wonderful community of caring people.
