For the second year in a row the Ottumwa Job Corps Staff donated Holiday gifts to families in the Ottumwa, Iowa area. Job Corps Staff members paid $2 into a “Casual for a Cause” fund to wear blue jeans on Fridays. In 2011 the Ottumwa Job Corps staff adopted and provided Holiday gifts for one family. This Holiday Season in 2012 the Ottumwa Job Corps Staff raised enough money through “Casual for a Cause” donations to adopt two families in the Ottumwa, Iowa area.
The sacks of Holiday gifts for the two families’ of four were dropped off at The Salvation Army Worship & Community Center with enough wrapping paper and tape so the parents of each family have the opportunity to wrap the gifts for their children.
