Buddy* got his turkey, Lucy* got a new coat, and Cornerstone Academy brought in lots of food and coats and helped us organize Thanksgiving donations.
Last year, 54 families and 274 individuals who would otherwise had little reason to celebrate, had a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner.
Families and friends provided amazing Christmas Celebrations for 214 excited and grateful children, mothers and fathers! Altogether, 53 families that would have otherwise gone without, opened gifts and presents this Christmas.
Generous donors, churches, and community organizations prepared complete ready-to-cook dinners with all the trimmings and donated funds for pre-cooked dinners for those families who do not have cooking facilities.
We are truly thankful!
You can help make Thanksgiving and Christmas, 2013 a time of celebration:
