San Juan Capistrano — On Saturday, December 17, 2005, the Office of the Orange County District Attorney (OCDA) will host its 7th Annual Adopt-a-Family Program at the San Juan Capistrano Community Center from 9 a.m. to noon.  Through this program, the OCDA adopts families (identified by the City of San Juan Capistrano) who need a little assistance during the holiday season.  This holiday event is part of the OCDA’s ongoing commitment to improving the quality of life in the Orange County communities.


Donations from OCDA staff and affiliates will provide 44 families with holiday dinner gift certificates and toys for their children.  This event is made possible through the collaboration of the City of San Juan Capistrano, OCDA Law Office Supervisors, Toys for Tots, OCDA Advisory Commissions, and the OCDA.


All adopted families are invited to attend this special holiday celebration.   At the event, the families will be able to receive their gifts and take part in a fun-filled morning.  The event will feature a resource table arts and crafts activities, balloons, and baked goods. The resource table will have staff and volunteers on hand to answer questions from the public about the criminal justice system and disseminate bilingual resource booklets.  Of course, the event would not be complete without Santa Claus to greet and take pictures with the children.
