WHAT WE DO


PROGRAMS

Christmas Wish Program

This program grants provisional wishes to financially challenged families, families impacted by tragedy, families who reside in homeless shelters and residents in local assisted living centers throughout the year!

In addition, multiple families are adopted and granted Christmas wishes during each holiday season. Once provided with the name, age, gender, clothing size and list of “Christmas Wish” items, our work begins. Gifts are purchased, wrapped and along with food items are personally delivered to each family on Christmas Eve. The families may receive gift certificates in lieu of a personal shopping experience.  

Testimonial – Lending help to those in need, throughout each and every year!
