First look at the 2016 Join the Team Calendar

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - For the ninth straight year, Chargers players and Adopt 8 kids have teamed up for a special adoption awareness calendar.

The 2016 Join the Team Calendar is hot off the presses and made its debut at Sunday’s Chargers-Chiefs game. It was handed out to fans for free.
     
The partnership between the Chargers, San Diego County Adoptions and Adopt 8 is a way to remind people throughout the year about the need for adoptive families. 
    
CBS News 8 would like to thank the 13 Chargers players who volunteered their time during the off-season this past summer to this important effort and this year several players shared how adoption has touched their own families.   

Photojournalist Ann Marie Spaulding and Marcella Lee have that story and a first look at the calendar in the above video.

    You can learn a lot about children, by the way they piece together a jigsaw puzzle. Some might get frustrated, or lose interest, others will stay focused, right through the very end. In Sunday's Adopt 8, Marcella Lee introduces us to a young boy, who shows us he's committed to achieving his goals - and he's hoping his dream of finding a forever home, comes true.
