This time of year, especially with snow and ice in the forecast, takes us to a wonderful place in our minds. Glittering Christmas trees…warm fireplaces…hot cocoa…families sitting together watching Christmas movies or reading books about snowmen and reindeer. It’s a scene that most of us take for granted.
However, that’s not the scene that most of the children we serve will experience. It’s especially painful this time of year with all the build-up and expectations that are part of the holidays. Dark and cold apartments…little food to eat…being with mom or dad during prison visiting hours…trying to keep young children entertained indoors and off the streets of dangerous neighborhoods. Their scene may look very different.
You can make a difference in the holiday experience for our children. For the cost of your weekly latte at Starbucks this winter, your donation can provide food, warm gloves and toys for a child will go without. The cost of the spiral cut honey ham you'll buy for Christmas dinner can provide food for a mother and her child and give that mother the joy of leaving presents under the tree.
