We would like to extend a note of thanks to our amazing donors and volunteers who made our annual Christmas Shopping Event possible for our families at Path of Life.
The event was held on December 20th and was a great success in our new warehouse. The children were entertained at the Family Shelter while volunteers helped the parents shop and wrap their Christmas gifts. It was a festive event with a visit from Easter Seals delivering refreshments and singing Christmas Carols with the parents early in the afternoon.
Over 20 different individuals, families, and organizations donated new, unwrapped toys, gift cards, and wrapping supplies for the event. Over 30 volunteers helped with setup leading up to the event, and 30+ more helped make the event a day to remember for the parents and children.
In addition, we had an overwhelming response to our Adopt-a-Family program this year, and are so grateful to all the friends and community members who granted families and program participants their Christmas wishes. As one of our supporters noted, “My friends and I were able to fulfill almost every single item on the wish list and I was so very blessed to have gathered all the presents!”
With your help, we gave over 60 families in our housed and shelter programs a memorable Christmas. Thank you so much for sharing your time this holiday season with us and gifting Christmas cheer to all of our program participants.
