Many of you have participated in our Christmas Adopt A Family program for the past several years and we wonder if you really know what this program means for many families. We would like to share a story with you.
In our selection process, we ask our parents if they have a special Christmas wish. Last year, one of our parents, a single mom who had been laid off 2 years earlier, expressed that all she wanted for Christmas was a job. The donor we placed her with immediately requested her resume. They interview her the week before our Christmas party and on the morning of the party, they offered her a position with their company as part of their Christmas gifts for her family. Needless to say, not only was our mom overwhelmed, but the staff of East Valley Family Services was overwhelmed byt this awesome Christmas gift.
Some once told me that very often, we will not see the results of the good that we do. That is why I hope this story is important to you. Your participation in the program gives the joy of the season to a family who may not otherwise even have a Christmas.
For those of you who have participated in the past, we ask that you please renew your partnership with East Valley Family Services and consider telling a friend about our Christmas Adopt-A-Family program. For our new friends, this is a program where you commit to assist a family with Christmas. You may choose the size of family you would like to help. We will send you a letter from then family, describing their needs, clothing sizes and a wish toy for each child.
On December 20th, 2014 you will have a opportunity to meet your family and experience the joy that your generosity brings at our holiday party. If you are unable to participate or wish to remain anonymous, Santa will make sure your family receives their gifts.
We, the staff and families of East Valley Family Services thank you.
