Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous New Year!
Holiday Gift Drive
It was a joy to see the caring spirit of all those who made the season bright by participating in our Holiday Gift Drive. You showered our kids with happiness by your generous giving!
See some of their comments below:
“Thank you for your thoughtfulness. I appreciate you. Happy New Year!”
One young woman was having a rough day prior to opening her gifts. After opening her gifts she got very excited and said, “Thank you so much! I got everything I wanted. Best Christmas!”
“The skateboard is the best thing ever. I’ve wanted that for years!”
“I’m so happy to get the earbuds. I’ve been wanting a pair!”
“Thank you for the prayer rug, it’s great!”
“Can’t believe I got the Beats headphones. It’s my favorite gift!”
End of the Year Campaign
We are incredibly thankful to all those who participated in our End of the Year Giving Campaign. Your generosity helped us raise $28,000! This money will help us provide child care for our young mothers, tutoring sessions, educational & recreational outings, GED programs, vocational trainings, trauma services, baby supplies, life skills trainings and a lot more. Thank you!
A Special Thank You to Social & Scientific Systems
The young men in our Avis Birley Program were treated to a special dinner by the folks at Social & Scientific Systems. Their group came loaded with food and gifts for the house including sheets, blankets, coats and many other household supplies. The guys also received personal gifts from them at the program’s holiday party. They were thrilled to receive the attention and love!
Thank you to all our holiday gifts sponsors!
