It was a very successful Christmas project this year! Thanks to everyone who helped! Many thanks to everyone who helped bring Christmas to the 30 families we adopted through the social worker at Sunnyslope School. 72 of our members and 7 of our friends and neighbors gave money, new clothing and gifts for the families. This generosity allowed us to help 96 children and 60 parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
We also gave Sunnyslope Elementary School the extra clothes, shoes, toys, toiletries, and gifts to help bring Christmas to the school families who hadn’t been adopted. Additionally, we were able to provide Walmart gift cards to the school to help the school provide clothing and shoes during the school year. We also bought Harkins movie tickets as gifts for the teachers and staff at the school who support our efforts every year.
In addition to helping the shelter and school during the year, we have made a donation to Lookout Mountain School After School Academy for scholarships for their after-school classes.
The net proceeds from the Charity Auction will be used to fund our projects for the balance of the year. Please join the fun and support these valuable causes.
