HUGE THANK YOU to each and e…
HUGE THANK YOU to each and every one of you who helped celebrate Christmas at the Fairweather Family Lodge last week.

We were able to bless 18 Moms and 57 kids with a Christmas they will never forget. We had lots of laughs and happy tears.

Many of you donated funds, gifts or your time to make this possible. And we couldn't have pulled this off without all of you.

Here’s a glimpse into the celebration: https://animoto.com/play/L3dBg4Kc2bi4hQzLRuxR1g

For the Party:
• Santa came to visit and was a hit! The kids screamed and cheered when he walked in!
• Central Market catered Holiday Dinner (Turkey, Ham, Mash Potatoes and Gravy, Stuffing, Green Beans, Rolls, Lemonade – Yum!)
• Christmas Cupcakes for dessert
• Professional family holiday photos with a framed family photos as a gift (This was a first family photo for many of them!)
• Kid’s Activities – Homemade Christmas Ornaments and Decorating Gingerbread Cookies
• Free Activity Packs and Book Fair for the Kids (each kid got to take home 3 free books!)
• Free Box of Diapers for the Moms (remaining diapers went to the lodge for new arriving Moms)

For the Families:
• Each Mom received:
o Reusable Bag with Dead Sea Lotions, Body Wash, Mud Masks, Orchid Hand Sanitizer
o Mia’s Mirror Purse, Scarf and Jewelry
o $100 H-E-B Gift Card
• Each Kid received:
o Stocking stuffed with candy and small toys
o Pair of clothes and socks
o Items off their wish lists: Shoes, Coats, PJs, Gloves/Hat
o 3-4 toys! (Barbies, Remote Control Cars, etc)

For the Family Lodge:
• $3,000 to fund moms’ childcare through May (for those who can’t yet afford it)
• 2 computers to help mom’s with job searches and applications
• 2 tablets with BiblioTech subscriptions
• 2 TVs for the apartments when 2 new moms move in
• 2 huge boxes of toys for day care

Thank you, Thank you, Thank You! Our hearts are full.
