One annual event that is always touches the lives of many families is our Open Door Christmas Toy Shop. In conjunction with Toys for Tots we assemble a one day store full of toys and food for families who struggle to have a meaningful Christmas. This year we were able to include a turkey for all of our families. Our dining room becomes a place of joy as parents come and shop for their own kids.
This past year our Christmas Toy Shop was able to reach out a helping hand to 60 children. Our volunteers are elated to be of service to families in need on that day.
Another annual event at Christmas Time is our Family Christmas Party. This year we fed about 90 people and gave out a boxed gift, which included food items, toiletries, hats, gloves, scarves and
toys. We also had a surprise visit from Old Saint Nick.
