Our Hopeful Holiday Campaign grew out of our conversation. There are three big ideas we consider when creating service opportunities for children.
This year HCO offered three service opportunities. Adopt a Santa Letter was an incredible success. We answered nearly 85 letters to Santa and made all those wishes come true. We received many Family Care Packages, including letters and cards written by children, a lovely and thoughtful touch. We reached out to South Hampton Animal Shelter, who reported receiving lots of dog teats, blankets, and other goodies- not sure how many of the HCO family participated in dropping stuff off. However, there is still time to do that if you are interested.
Four days ago, we added a last-minute toy drive, which many families visited, enabling us to donate bags and boxes of toys to underserved children. If your children came to the toy-drive -I'm sure they felt the joy.
We will continue to think about ways to get children involved in service and love to hear your thoughts, experiences, and any new ideas about the topic. If you participated in our Hopeful Holiday Campaign opportunities, we love to hear about it and see pictures!
Cheers to a Happy and Hopeful New Year
