On December 19, Miriam, from Sharon Social Services, picked up the Christmas presents for 22 children in our community, beautifully wrapped by our confirmation class, the CE board and others in the congregation. Thank you to everyone for giving a contribution, or their time and talents in order to give the gift of hope to those in need. The spirit of this giving project also touched the hearts others:
Excerpts from Miriam’s thank you note says:
There are not enough words to express my gratitude for creating the Three Gifts Project. I felt the love of the Savior in every gift. Thank you for loving the innocent children as our savior does. This program allowed the children to receive something they selected, not something that they had to settle for, or something used. I believe that it makes them feel worthy of a better life, that circumstance does not define who they are or who they will become. You have given the gift of hope and better days to come.
Quotes from members of the confirmation class:
“It was so much fun and I’m super happy that I got to experience it. Also, it made me feel good to help kids of all ages”. -----MP
“I love helping local families in need around the holidays. I enjoyed picking out their gifts and I really hoped they enjoy them”!-----OP
