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:
Hillcrest staff members
The Bissell Family
Moresi & Associates
Pittsfield Cooperative Bank
Martin & Oliveira, LLP
Cohen, Kinne, Valicenti and Cook
Berkshire Business and Professional Women
Junior League of Berkshire County
Hanscomb Airforce Base
Greylock Federal Credit Union
…and dozens of other anonymous “Santas” that really made this holiday season special for our children.
Students wrote thank you letters to Santa to let him know just how much the gifts meant to them this holiday season through the Holiday Wish Program!
Thank you to everyone in our community who helped to make Christmas morning for our students so special!
