It’s never too late for a Christmas recap, is it?
This year, we served over 900 children in Durham, Orange, and Person counties through our Christmas Angel Tree program. We had over 2,700 volunteer hours logged. We raised over $70,000 through kettle ringing. We gave away almost 10,000 gifts and toys!
We could not have had such a successful, service-filled Christmas season without our volunteers and sponsors.
Our Boys & Girls Club had an amazing Christmas party this year. For the first time, we had every single child sponsored by a community member or partner organization. If you missed it, you can still watch our video on Facebook of our kids opening all of their gifts…at the same time! It was a wild, beautiful, fun evening for all of us.
We served almost 400 people through Free Food Friday, our weekly food giveaway program. This program has been steadily growing since its beginning and we are thrilled. Volunteers have been faithfully showing up each week to help us serve our community.
2018 was an amazing year and we are looking forward to Doing the Most Good in 2019!
