The holidays are always a joyous time as we celebrate the birth of Christ. At KDS, our students, faculty, staff and friends helped spread the holiday spirit by serving others and enjoying the wonder of the season together.
Everyone at KDS would like to express appreciation to the generous donors who helped make Christmas merry for some special boys and girls and their families.
Sixty-one KDS students were sponsored, and nearly $11,000 was given by 114 donors through the 2017 "Snowflake" Holiday Giving Campaign, ensuring that families in need would have reason to celebrate on Christmas morning. What a wonderful way to rejoice in the spirit of the holiday season!
