Holiday of Hope

The following post was submitted to us by ALSC Member Pattie Lenz

As the holidays summon forth our giving spirit, we would like to invite you to join us in helping financially strapped families from our area, to make Christmas special for their children. 

We are organizing a "Holiday Of Hope" gift shop.  The shop will open December 17th for parents/ caregivers to come and select unwrapped items for their children. Last year (thanks to your help) we were able to provide 193 families with gifts for their children. Our goal this year is to provide 600 gifts. We even have a list of gifts to make it easy if you are interested. We are excited to make this event happen again and I hope you want to join in and help us.
Here are ways to get involved: 
  • Purchase or provide money for a gift or two. Toys for children 0-11 or gift card ($25.00) from Target Stores, Ulta Cosmetics or Old Navy for youth 12-18.
  • Prepare cookies or provide cocoa/ coffee for attendees and volunteers.
  • Organize a toy drive in your place of business
  • Volunteer to help set up the toy shop or assist parents in shopping. (the location this year will be at The Angle Lake Family Resource Center at 4040 So. 188th Street)
  • Refer a local family you know that needs help.
Please bring your toy/ gift to the family resource center no later than December 12th.  Let the goodness shine through! May your generosity bring the joy of the season alive in your heart!
