This newsletter will be short and sweet!
thank you to all of donors and volunteers who helped us pull off amazing parties at all six of our locations.
About 250 CAN students each received 2 gifts they really wanted and 2 gifts they really needed this year.
These gifts had so much meaning to CAN's children and youth.
One student from Arrowwood Hills Community Center exclaimed:
"I've wanted these LOL dolls all year long!"
when she opened her present from Santa at the Arrowwood Hills holiday party.
It is such a relief for so many of our families to not have to worry about whether their kids will enjoy this holiday season with so many external pressures to provide "the perfect Christmas." Instead, they can focus on spending quality time with family and friends, knowing their kids won't feel left out when they go back to school and they will be able share with all of their friends what a great holiday they had.
We love being a part of our families' lives and are glad that, in partnership with our communities, we can make a difference.
We wish you a Happy Holidays. May they be full of joy and peace!
