Hark Hear the Bells...it's time for Christmas!

'Tis the Season for tradition, for ornaments, for cookies, and for gifts! All of these elements are a part of our annual Make Welcome Christmas party. Ornaments are made, cookies are decorated, traditions are shared, and yes, gifts are given.

We wish you could attend the festivities with us, but alas, space is limited. Don't despair...you can still be a part of the celebration - you can give gifts! We currently have 14 families represented in our program, and need some help being Santa. So here's where you come in. We need you to:

  • Sponsor a Family's presents for $20. We'll take care of the buying and are planning on educational toys and sewing and/or home gifts for the moms. The donation button is at the end of this post. (Remember, we're not a 501(c)3, so donations are not tax deductible.)
  • Share a favorite Christmas tradition or recipe in the comments section below. We'll share these with the ladies at the Christmas party. 

Thank you for being a part of our celebration and for sharing the Christmas spirit in this way with our wonderful refugee families. 

“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― Francis of Assisi
