Kristine had a wonderful idea for this years Toy / Gift Drive.
She said New Frontiers is putting together food boxes for two needy families. They used to do toys and such, but can only afford to do food, soap, shampoo, cleaning, and paper products this year. She suggested that those wanting to participate could ‘adopt’ a family member. So let's join together to add toys/misc. gifts for the family members. (gift cards would be great as well.)
If you’d like to join in and help, please post a comment on how you’d like to contribute, or which family member you’d like to adopt.
Thank you all, this can be a wonderful way to see that these families have a great holiday season!
Please bring something to drink. Warm drinks suggested (perhaps with a dash of something extra toasty if you'd like) and we can make some popcorn, put a movie on and participate in gift wrapping fun! Anyone is welcome to join us, help out, or just show your support and hang out with friends!
If you can't make the wrapping party, please contact Kristine and I and we can see the families receive your gift.
The two families in need are as follows:
The first family has 3 boys – 15,11 & 8 and a girl 13 – the girl is in middle school and the oldest boy in high school and the 2 younger at PdH. Mom has a job and Dad works construction sites.
The second family has a 6yr old girl and a 3 year old boy, Grandpa is having treatment for cancer and works from home – Mom is a part time student. Not sure what kind of cancer though, sorry.
Both families are appreciative of any help they receive!
