Jack and Jill of America's Northwest Indiana chapter partnered with Catholic Charities to adopt a local family for the holidays. The group provided food, coats, hats, mittens, clothing, toys and other household items for a family of four. Catholic Charities got the items during a brunch in Schererville earlier this month.
