Our team has been getting together for several months now, brainstorming ways to make this event the best it can be. For those new to our page, we'd like to give you a better idea of what we're trying to accomplish.
The holidays are a joyous time for most people, but for many families in our community that idea is far from a reality. Putting a decent meal on the table can be a constant struggle for some, never mind providing gifts for children over the holidays.
We are working with social workers at a few select schools in the Rochester City School District to identify our first group of families. We will be inviting them to join us for an extraordinary evening of making memories with their loved ones. While we have to limit ourselves to 10 families this first year, we hope to build on this for many years to come, extending our reach to as many families as possible.
The festivities will consist of a limo ride to and from the event where they will be served a warm, holiday meal. They will be treated to music, entertainment and gifts will be given to all members of their families. We will also send each family home with the fixings for their own meal, as well as additional gifts for their children to open on Christmas day, or any other day of their choosing.
This is where you... our family, friends and community come into play. We are beginning the donation process already to help us achieve all that we wish to do. We have already sought out local businesses to help, but we will need monetary donations from now through the event. As we get closer to the holidays, we will post specific wish lists from the families. Supporters will then be able to buy from that, as well.
All monies and donations collected will be used for the families invited to the event. If you have any questions, please contact us. One of us will get back to you as soon as we're able.
We thank you for reading through this and hope you'll find our cause worthy enough of your support!
