Holiday of Wishes
Submitted By Bill Rinetti
The Holiday's are here, families around the world gather together to celebrate with festive decorations, feasts of all flavors and often an exchange of gifts. What's very easy to forget during these times of feasting and celebrating is the fact that there are so many families in our own neighborhood that are struggling just to put food on the table for their kids, and gifts are not even an option.
They desperately need our help.
Holiday of Wishes is an organization comprised of members of our community helping families in need this holiday season. We have decided to raise money and collect toys as well as food so that we can help families from a local elementary school that are struggling more than most this year.
On Saturday, December 17, 960 kids will receive gifts to open Christmas morning and 320 families will be given the food and sense of community to take home to enjoy Christmas with their family.
This Year give the greatest gift of all... The Gift of Christmas!
