Every year, as winter approaches, our kids begin to believe again — in the magic of the holidays. With the kids' input, we provide businesses, churches, even individuals with those wishes in mid-November to guide them in selecting presents for the kids. Then, after collecting the gifts at their businesses and other organizations, these volunteers arrange to deliver the items they’ve gathered the first few weeks of December. Your generosity brings smiles to a lot of young faces — and joy to many hearts.
If you are interested in:
A few items we know the kids will need this year include:
• New winter coats (baby through adult sizes)
