Holiday Wish Program Success


Holiday celebration

What a successful year for our Holiday Wish Program! Each of our students creates a “wish” list and asks for several gifts for the holiday season. We are blessed to have several community individuals and organizations play Santa and help fulfill each child’s list. By the look on each child’s face when they received their gifts, this year was one of the best ever! Who knew it took so much work to coordinate and deliver almost 800 gifts.





We could not have done it without the following major supporters:
