Adopt A Family- Gift Wrap and Gift Drop off- We did it!!!! Thanks to everyone who chipped in

Well this isn't much in the way of an event per se but I wanted to acknowledge all the amazing contributions we received to sponsor five families through Compass Family Services.

I'm please to report that thanks to your generosity, we were able to cover all five families. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Not only did we receive enough funds to cover all five families but we also had funds to get many  "wanted items" in addition to the needed items. We also were able to get an array of gifts (from clothes, to fun toys, to educational/school related toys and items). And on top of that of course are all the gift cards we provided for the adult family members. Julia and I divided up the families and shopped for items this week that weren't donated.  I finished that last bit of shopping yesterday. I spent this morning wrapping my portion of the family gifts.... here they are:











I would have liked to have done a gift wrapping party but I'm in the middle of moving at the moment and time slipped away. Now, I'm off to SF to pick up Julia and the other half of the gifts and drop off the gifts at Compass Family Services. Thank to everyone for the support. I'm continually inspired and grateful.
