Here at Love INC, we are having a fantastic Christmas season. We got to set up our wonderful Christmas store for our New Directions participants. At our Christmas store, we were able to offer toys for our children, home goods to help our families get ahead, gas cards and bus passes for holiday travel, and more!
We had around 100 participants for our Christmas store who had saved about 5,000 points to spend. These hardworking neighbors in need had been saving their points all year in order to ensure that their families would have some great Christmas presents. Amazing volunteers helped all throughout the process, helping the families choose items and keeping track of how many points they had already spent.
Over and over again, we heard what a blessing this was to people’s families. One neighbor in need was going to see her grandchildren for the first time in 5 years, and she was able to get them Christmas presents because of this great event!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Christmas store this year. You were a huge blessing to many families who will be able to have a Christmas because of your generosity.
