To Sponsors, Volunteers, Partners:
Because of your blessings, over 300 children and their families woke up on Christmas morning knowing the blessing of Christ’s love though Secret Santa. This year, other than the Christmas gifts, families received a Bible and each children received a needs bag.
This program takes 2 and a half active months of hard work and many volunteers to be successful. The community participation was greater than previous years. Registration was blessed with many volunteers and registrants given hand knitted caps and ‘blessing’ bracelets. Sponsors at Thanksgiving allowed the program a new element of cyber-shopping. We had more self-shopping sponsors this year, however, there was still enough shopping for those who wanted to participate in our annual shopping trip.
Target, our shopping partner, was gracious this year with their participation and accommodation for this project. South Aiken NJROTC helped volunteers from the church at our weekend wrapping parties. Inventory and distribution were adjusted this year to the Fellowship Hall. A big thank you to all who participated and brought their pickup trucks for some necessary deliveries.
A special thank you to the Kindergarten sacrificing lunch space for 3 days. Again this program would not be successful without everyone’s participation.
God Bless those of you who participated and we look forward to another successful year in 2018.
