Christmas Thank You

Our Christmas for Kids campaign is complete – all gifts are wrapped, delivered and nestled away at each home, awaiting the family’s Christmas celebrations. It was another amazing season, full of generous individuals, businesses, churches and organizations.

Our Volunteer and Event Coordinator Caroline Curran writes:

“Over the past several weeks, I have had the great joy of coordinating our Christmas for Kids drive. The generosity and giving spirits of many sponsors have allowed our children to experience the magic of Christmas throughout the month of December. The children were able to shop for their loved ones, compete in snowmen competitions, receive handmade toys and eat yummy holiday meals. With the help of these countless sponsors, the magic will continue into Christmas morning, with wish lists fulfilled under the Christmas tree! Thank you to all the generous sponsors and individuals who helped to fulfill wishes, host events and wrap presents. We couldn’t do it without you!”
