Every year we ask the children in our Foster Care and Healthy Families programs and the group homes what they would like for the holidays. Each child gives us one item of clothing and one toy or personal item they would like. Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of local families and businesses, all our children received their wish list items.
In addition to receiving gifts for specific children, donations were made of general items for our three group homes and other programs. People generously donated new toiletry items, art supplies, puzzles, games, towels, sheets, pajamas, winter coats and much more. Every year we’re amazed at the generosity of our supporters!
This tradition has been a part of our organization for many years and we couldn’t do it without the help of donors and volunteers. Volunteers are a critical part of our work and ensure that we can continue to provide services for a growing number of children and their families.
