Holiday of Wishes
By Andy Lyn
-- The Holidays are when many of us look forward to gatherings, holiday meals, decorations and exchanges of gifts. It is easy to forget there are people in our community going through tough times and struggling to put food on their tables. A holiday celebration and an exchange of gifts are not even an option.
Holiday of Wishes is an organization consisting of local businesses and community members helping needy families enjoy this holiday season. This year, we are inviting children and families that are documented at poverty level or below from six of the elementary schools in our community. We will provide gifts for each child registered in each family for them to open on their holiday morning and a reusable grocery bag containing enough food for a holiday meal for a family of six.
We are collecting new, unwrapped toys for children aged 1-16 years, boxed potatoes and stuffing, canned corn, green beans, cranberry and gravy. Everyone can help holiday wishes come true this year by giving the greatest gift... a community pulling together to ensure every child and family in our community enjoys the magic and beauty of the holiday season.
Individuals or organizations wishing to participate should contact Renee@avalonspasalon.com
