Thank You Donors
Holiday Assistance 2018
Thanks to our donors and partners, 44 children woke on Christmas morning to gifts that met basic needs and at least one wish.
24 bags of gifts, 24 boxes of food, and 24 containers of homemade cookies and ornaments were delivered to our highest-need families between December 19-21. The entire project took many hands: ambassadors to make cookies; community members to purchase gifts; 4-H club members to make ornaments; teachers to donate board games, hot cocoa mixes, and more. #ItTakesAVillage

I like to think I’m really artsy. People say I giggle a lot. I’ll go out of my way to make sure a person knows they are loved. I believe in acting the way you’d like to see others act. I want all the puppies in the world.
