It is only through the generosity of the neighbors in our communities who hear us ringing our bells and asking for dedicated volunteers that we are able to provide Christmas for at-risk children. It is this generosity that helps support programs aimed at helping families in crisis and homelessness.
Christmas is also when families come to us with their most pressing needs. We believe that every child deserves a memorable Christmas morning but for families who are struggling to meet their most basic needs, it can be difficult to ensure that their little angels have a present under the tree.
Every year, we are amazed at the beautiful, selfless acts of generosity from our neighbors just like you. Giving up an hour to volunteer to ring at a red kettle or at our Christmas Center may not seem like much but each hour but it often translates to being able to help provide for many more families.
We can stay focus on providing for the needs of the most vulnerable in our community because we have seen our community at their most generous. In the face of greater need, our communities respond with greater acts of kindness and support.
Thank you for all that you do to make sure that families have food on their tables, a roof over their head, and joy under their trees this Christmas season. Give financially
