Each year our Holiday Hampers bring an abundance of joy – thanks to the generous hearts of Dickens parents & guardians! This year we prepared gifts for 19 families in our Cedar Cottage community:
Your thoughtful cash donations were used by our “volunteer shoppers” to ensure that each child received at least two toys and a book, one arts-and-craft kit or item, and two articles of clothing for the winter. There were also several delightful gift donations generated from the “wishlist” posted on our tree tags at both schools. The adults (parents/grandparents) received grocery gift certificates.
An enormous Thank You to Jacqui Thomas, Lauren Lautzenhiser and Lee Bensted who co-ordinated the entire “Holiday Hampers” campaign. A huge Thanks too to our volunteer shoppers and intrepid gift-wrappers!
And finally, many Thanks to all Dickens Families who donated! You've helped to make this season a little more festive for these 19 Cedar Cottage households.
