Community Steps into Santa’s Boots

    Christmas is right around the corner, as today we entered the fourth distribution day of the Christmas Offering. Today alone, we are providing gifts for over 130 of the needy families who called in to be on our Christmas Waiting List. At the beginning of the season, because we already committed to 1200 needy children, we at HSP were not sure if we would be able to serve these extra, “waiting list families.” Thanks to the generosity of donors, we will be providing wonderful, new toys to the children of these families. We wish to thank everyone who contributed to our Christmas Offering by donating Giving Tree gifts or organizing/ participating in a toy drive. It is thanks to all of you that the approximately 490 children on our waiting list, in addition to the 1200 needy children we already served, will be receiving these greatly desired new toys this Christmas.
     Christmas is indeed the season of giving, and so many friends of HSP have given so much to make Christmas joyful to the needy families we serve.  Many families have called to express thanks for the generosity our donors have bestowed upon them, saying these gifts will mean so much to their children. We at HSP wish to thank everyone who has enabled our Christmas Offering to reach these needy families this year.
