to provide a complete holiday dinner with all of the trimmings for a family AND gifts
for the children within that family. The second option is to provide just a
complete holiday dinner for a family of six. This is a wonderful opportunity to share your
blessings AND we welcome and encourage individual participation from all residents,
community organizations and corporate entities.

response to this year’s Sponsor Program for Thanksgiving was tremendous and we
thank all participants, particularly given the loss of power and destruction

giving to others is really the spirit of Christmas. Our immediate concern is obtaining enough
sponsors for the many families with children, so please call as soon as
possible. We’ll answer your questions
and complete the paperwork over the phone
