The Middletown Action Network will be accepting gift items and donations up until Dec. 18.

Are you looking for a way to help those in need this holiday season?

There are lots of ways to help the less fortunate, whether it is donating to food pantries, helping with the M.O.T. Kettle Campaign, or by adopting a family.

If you go to the Middletown Town Hall on Green Street, you can get a candy cane with a child or parent's wish on it.

The Middletown Action Network will be accepting gift items and donations up until Dec. 18.

The adopt-a-family at town hall will help families in need this season that may not be able to afford holiday gifts for their children or each other.

Greta at the front desk will be able to assist you, town planner Tim DeSchepper said in a e-mail.

Here are some of the wish lists that are available to contribute to:
