Community Members Enjoy Adopt-a-Cottage Time at Kurn Hattin
Each year, Kurn Hattin hosts an Adopt-A-Cottage night for the business, organization, and individual sponsors of the cottages where the children live on campus. The sponsorship provides for basic necessities of cottage life, such as new pillows, sheets, kitchen supplies, and other household items. This year, each cottage received really cool gift–air conditioners! To show appreciation to those who have “adopted” a cottage, a meal is held in the sponsors honor so that they can spend time with the children whom their gifts have directly benefitted.
