This week, we hosted a Christmas party for the children at Three Angels Christian Academy. Every student, along with most of their parents and siblings, came for the fun. Each grade got a chance to showcase their talents with a song, dance, or other festive presentation for their fellow classmates and families to enjoy. There were even a few impromptu dance numbers by some of the parents— a huge hit with the crowd! The place was packed, and the fun meter was off the charts. Our newly-donated sound system made it all the more festive!
The children were given a day off from their usual required uniforms so they could choose to dress up in their Christmas best. Most did, and WOW they looked beautiful! Even some of the teachers went all out for the occasion.
Following the formal festivities, the kids were given small gifts of toys and candy. Then they joined their families, and every single one of them received a Christmas Dinner kit in a tote bag, which was filled with all the fixings for a chicken dinner big enough for the entire family. This was a VERY big deal for these families, and a great time was had by everyone!
All of this is thanks to our amazing friends and partners like YOU who helped us to give these children a happy Christmas. Each Christmas Dinner was provided by a donor for $25/family, and the response was so amazing that every single family will enjoy a delicious chicken dinner this year!
