We rely on your generosity to make the season joyful for local families who are struggling this year. And once again, we are humbled by the generous outpouring of support by our caring community.
Thanks to donations of in-kind gifts and monetary support -- and the commitment of our dedicated volunteer Santa elves -- our Holiday Gift Room provided toys, games, books, and warm clothing for more than 1,000 children. More than 600 families enjoyed a special December holiday meal thanks to holiday collection drives and donations.
We especially appreciate all the community groups, faith communities, businesses, schools, families, retailers, and other groups that hosted collection bins or drives.
