This month, we would like to put a spotlight on not a single volunteer, but to ALL volunteers who helped make our Holiday Sponsorship program a success. We are stronger together, and without each and every one of you, it would not have been possible to give 118 families a Christmas this year. A special thank you goes to Joyce L. and Pam J. for putting in a combined 30 hours of volunteering and going above and beyond! This year, we had over 34 volunteers put in a total of 146 volunteer hours. Volunteers helped with receiving gifts from donors, wrapping and labeling gifts, and delivering gifts to clients.

This program also would not have been possible without our sponsors. We had over 160 donors contribute gifts for our families. We are overflowing with gratitude for our generous community. The following quote from a client is just one of many that show the impact our volunteers and donors have on this program.

“Thank you so very much for all of your help. It will always be in my heart & that of my children. I was alone in this country that was not mine and you gave me security when I thought I had nothing. You are the angels in my life.”
