Pass It On Photos

Pass It On, our Christmas giving program, provided more than 2000 gifts for families in our community that would not have had Christmas otherwise.  Pass It On is unique because it allows parents to pick gifts for their children, but also children to select gifts for their parents.  Our friendly volunteers gift wrap the presents on site so that families can go home and celebrate Christmas together.  Pass It On 2013 will be held December 14, and sign up through the Hand Extended Food Pantry has already begun.
