A Successful Holiday Season – Thanks to YOU
Due to the generosity of our amazing community, our guests had an unforgettable holiday season! On Thanksgiving, the guests in our transitional apartments enjoyed family dinner made from meal kits donated by shelter supporters. Then again, on Christmas Day, donated meal kits made it possible for them to prepare a Christmas feast. At Easton’s Promise, the guests shared a phenomenal Christmas dinner prepared by Scossa and the Tidewater Inn.
Members of our community adopted every man, woman, and child in our program. Santa’s sleigh (which looks an awful lot like Director of Operations Fran Doran’s pickup truck) worked overtime on Christmas Eve to make sure there were presents under every tree. On Christmas morning, our guests were overwhelmed to see how much their neighbors care about them.
Fran says, “I cannot say thank you enough to all those who volunteered to help. Once we finished delivery on Christmas Eve, we went home and counted our blessings. All of our families were adopted and they all had a wonderful Christmas. The children’s faces lit up with the fact that Santa found them here. All of you are truly heroes!”
