In October, Coldwater will start sign-ups for Christmas adoptions. For many of the families Coldwater serves, Christmas adoption gifts are tremendously important to ensure their children have presents under the Christmas tree. Last year with the help of our generous community Coldwater was able to fulfill the Christmas wishes of 550 children. If you adopted last year, thank you for helping make wishes come true for children in our community. 
We anticipate the same need this year. To help you start your planning for Christmas gift-giving, we would like to give you plenty of time to sign up to adopt a child(ren) through Coldwater. If you would like to adopt a child(ren) this holiday season, please contact Melisa Davis at

Families may sign up at the Friend's Day events on October 11 and 25.
Once you have indicated that you would like to adopt a child, volunteers will send you information about the child(ren) through the mail at the end of October. Gift tags will give you all of the information you need to buy your child a clothing item and special request item. We also will include gift-buying tips and drop-off instructions.
Thank you so much for your generosity. Happy Holidays!
Melisa Davis & Jennifer Collier

Volunteer Appreciation

Coldwater would not exist if not for its volunteers. Whether your passion helped launch a program at Coldwater, your leadership helps progress and define Coldwater, or your heart and hands help keep Coldwater alive, we recognize your contribution to the cause. Together we strive to bring friendship and hope to those in need, often receiving back just as much as we give to others. 
Coldwater would like to show its appreciation for your time with a night of fellowship, fun and floats (rootbeer that is). Please join us on 
Thursday, October 16 
from 7-8:30 p.m. 
at Cornerstone Church 
for Coldwater's Volunteer Appreciation Night. You are welcome to come at any time during the evening, but you won't want to miss out on any of the fun.

Thank you for all you do to serve in our community.
Monica Humbard
Interim Coldwater Director
