Christmas for Fairweather Family Lodge
Organized by: Sarah Nelson
It's hard to imagine Christmas without celebrations, delicious food and gathering around the tree to open gifts. Help make sure the 20 single moms and 45 kids of Fairweather Family Lodge have a Christmas to remember!
As these single moms work hard to get their families back on their feet, the H-E-B Digital Team wants to bless them with a holiday meal, visit from Santa Clause, kids' activities (homemade ornaments and decorating cookies!), family photos (many don't have one!) and lots of laughs.
Any amount you can give matters! Think of it this way: $5 means a kiddo gets to create an ornament for the tree, $10 covers a holiday meal and $15 means a child gets to unwrap a gift.
Please help us make this happen! Any funds not used to bless these families at the party will be donated directly to Fairweather Family Lodge.
The Fairweather Family Lodge provides permanent supportive housing, case management, life skills training, employment, educational assistance and other supportive services to women with mental illness and their children in an apartment style campus.
"I came from an abusive relationship, dysfunctional family and a background of drug abuse. When I found out about my mental illness, I denied it. After starting my recovery and life at Fairweather Family Lodge, I realized that I needed to be around people with positive attitudes, someone to talk to and a safe place to call home. Thanks to this program, I have been reunited with my children. The Fairweather Family Lodge has been a blessing since day one!" -Valerie, FFL Client
