Gifts of all sizes...

At Beacon Place we know that Christmas gifts come in all shapes and sizes... sometimes they are brand new bikes wrapped in pink ribbons and streamers, sometimes they are gifts you can give to mom and dad, or a new toy or game, or even a new blanket or heater for your family. Sometimes gifts are volunteers and partners, and sometimes gifts even come as cement, rebar, and in cranes and bulldozers building our new Learning and Enrichment Center. No matter what, all gifts are given from the heart and truly make this community special. 

Each and every day at Beacon Place we are lucky enough to see the very best in human nature. We see people like you that have been willing to reach out and help, to share what you have been given - whether your time, your talents or your gifts, to make sure that other children and families have the chance to hope for a brighter future. 

You have changed lives, changed families, changed communities, and changed futures. 
For that, we are so very grateful.

From our Beacon Place family to yours, our very best wishes for a blessed holiday season.
