year, we are gratified by your response to our call for support during
our Annual Family Hamper Drive.
organize to supply hampers for approximately 100 families in need each
hampers go to families we know well, for they belong to the children
who are registered in our education and treatment programs.
We know who has had a baby, whose household is undergoing trauma and
distress, and whose children are the neediest. Our professional staff
of psychologists, speech and occupational therapists, social workers,
teachers and assistants are in constant touch and visit these families
regularly. That's how we know their holiday needs and wishes so well.
These families have needs which become even more pressing during the
holidays when children's expectations for gifts and celebratory food
overwhelm a solo parent, a single breadwinner, or an unemployed father
or mom, who have empty pocket books and insurmountable family stresses.
Toys, candies, gifts, along with the vital personal and household items
you provided, bring great joy and make life differences for children
who expect and will not be disappointed in Santa's visit this year!
