YOU ALL!! I am beyond excited to be working with some outstanding partners in Jefferson County, WV for a unique, first of its kind event! This is not our official announcement, but December 20th is just around the corner, and we have a lot to do!! This has not been long in planning, as the stars aligned with a dash of Christmas magic, and we have been able to pull together some amazing resources to support this Hispanic and Latino outreach event for the holiday season. A big thank you to the Jefferson County Health Department for bringing this opportunity to our Hispanic and Latino community!! I have a few final partners to announce, however, we could still use your help as we launch this initiative on December 1st!!How can you help?Have you used your grocery rewards for a free ham or turkey that is offered through most of our chain grocery stores? If not, feel free to redeem and donate!! We have freezer space and will be packaging meals for 50 families!Do you have $5 to spare? If so, please consider a $5 Gift Card to a local retailer and donating to this cause. We will be giving gift cards from Santa out to our children who attend.I know we will reach more than 50 families, but that is what we are budgeted for... can you help us serve the overflow?? Also, I need volunteers for the night of to package food and just help with people management and traffic flow. We have an outstanding group of volunteers for translation services, so hats off to their support!! A big thank you to all of our partners who jumped in without hesitation and have collaborated with 100% commitment and support! Of course, thank you to SC Studios who is always along for the ride with my craziness!! Between my sleigh, our Santa and your photo booth, there will be some wonderful family photos for these families to enjoy! ... See MoreSee Less
