Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays!
This year myself, in conjunction with Columbus Grill have received names of approximately 104 Children from Untrim a tree in Prince William County and Social Services and we have given our word that we are going to not only provide a great Holiday meal for these families but also buy two gifts for each child from their wish list and provide their parent(s) with a $50 gift card for essentials (like food or toiletries). So many of these children and families would have no Christmas without our help! This is not an easy nor is it a cheap feat. We concluded that for a one child family the cost for the gifts is approximatly $100.
So many of people have been so generous to adopt complete families and so many provided donations that will go towards purchasing what we need to make these families Holiday wishes come true. Opening our hearts to families in need during the Holidays is a soul warming experience. We understand in these economic times it is financially hard for us to be able to adopt a whole family so any contribution is accepted and appreciated.
I have four families left, Two 2 children families, One 3 Children Families and One 4 Children families.
Once we have this task completed, we are going on to hopefully getting stockings for the children.
If you are interested in adopting a family (this only means that you would be willing to provide the gifts they are asking for and wrap them and drop them off at Columbus Grill in Manassas, VA) or just providing a donation (you can send it via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org) any help would be appreciated!!
Thank you all again
