2017 Compassionate Christmas in Review

Over 15 volunteers spent over 18 hours the two days before Christmas Eve 2017 and took a whole room filled with gently used and new toys, clothes, new pajamas, household goods and so much more from 20 some families from the community, several area businesses and several anonymous contributors and gifted them to what ended up being 18 families (87 people) in need!! There was NOTHING left in that room when we left!!

We wrapped, we hugged, we cried, we laughed and WE (our little Douglas County community) brought joy and Christmas to SOOOOOO many people!!!

Gratitude from our Community Families:

‘I just want to say thank you again for everything!  The smiles today would have warmed you to the depths of your soul, it sure did mine.  You and your helpers are angels!’

‘Thank you so much for all of the gifts!  Our daughter had so much fun opening all her presents and playing!  You were a blessing to our family this Christmas!  Thank you again!’

‘I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I am so grateful!  You have made Christmas so special for me and my kids.’

‘Thank you so much, this truly helps me in many ways!  You are a blessing!’

It was sincerely our honor and pleasure to coordinate this initiative!!
