With your help, 28 local families were served with holiday blessings! We received this message today from one of the families in our program: “We thank you, we love you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family. We didn’t know how the kids were going to have Christmas and now you have made all 5 children very happy. What else can we say besides Thank You!”
