February 2016 Edition


Adopt-a-family
Forty-six Families were sponsored by 35 groups of families, friends, schools, businesses, churches, clubs and neighbors for Christmas 2015.  That is 15 more families than were supported in 2014!  Each sponsor provided gifts for each family member and personally delivered the gifts to their door.  Our client families are always so overjoyed by the generosity shown to them during this wonderful time of year and we are truly grateful that so many in our community stepped up to make this a holiday we won't soon forget!

     
Client Holiday Party
WHP client families celebrated the holidays at the Annual Client Holiday Party in December.  Thank you Memorial Drive United Methodist Church & the whole crew at The Refuge for use of your great space, set up & clean up, the delicious dinner, candy houses & photo booth with Santa! Thanks also to Girl Scout Troop 18374 for the fun craft table, and Troops 18246, 18963 & 18061 for the handmade scarves & goody bags. Thanks to Temple Sinai for the adorable "adopt a stuffed animal" table. And last but not least, thank you Cub Scout Pack 598 for the beautiful wreaths and carol singing!
                            

Believe in the Spirit...
13 local families came together to host the "Believe in the Spirit of Giving Party" benefiting WHP.  A party with a purpose, this annual event takes place each December at a community park, where an outdoor holiday movie is played and hot cocoa is shared.  Children of all ages attend with their families and learn about WHP and our work in their schools and many come with their piggy banks and allowances in hand ready to donate to the cause.  This year's event was a tremendous success and we are so thankful to the Armbrister, Beck, Bradley, Engrall, Halaska, Hubbard, Kafka, Lane, Martin, Mattingly, Ramke, Robishaw and Springer families for all their hard work and dedication to this wonderful event.

Breakfast 4 Birds
Kimberly Hillman, Gwen Baird & LaVaughn Sims hosted their 5 th Annual breakfast to collect turkeys for all the families of WHP and this year collected 30 big birds for Thanksgiving meals.

Thanksgiving in a box
Bear Creek United Methodist Church provided 34 "Thanksgiving in a Box" kits.  Each one filled to the brim with all the fixings needed for a delicious holiday meal.
