I just wanted to thank everyone who volunteered and participated this year. I will always believe that together we will all make our community a better place.
Thank you for the support you gave this Thanksgiving and Christmas season especially for the food donations and Christmas gifts.
With all the gift donations, we were able to sponsor 14 kids this Christmas - 6 kids at Hope Shelter, 1 little girl from Nicholas House and the Bacon family (family of 10 whose house burned down this year).
The Shelter director of Hope Shelter was so overjoyed with all the love she received. The parents and people that received their gifts were so thankful. The grandmother of 2 of the children just couldn't say thank you enough. It was so touching.
The Christmas party was coordinated by our member Pam Iverson. Special thanks to her for pulling this all together and for the wonderful volunteers that helped (Marsha, Naesha, Natasha, Cindy, Tina, LaShawn, Debbie and Christina). She was able to get a Santa (real beard and all...lol) and a photographer (Gloria) with ttphotos.com for the event.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2012.
