I have been waiting for the right case to spotlight today, a few days before Christmas. The Christmas song “If You Just Believe” was just playing on Pandora. One of the Volunteers just told me about something that happened earlier today.
Here’s a reason to believe in Christmas and the love and brotherhood inspired by the birth of the Christ child. A church group showed up this morning to donate some gently used toys, food, hygiene items, and dog food. Our office team remembered a struggling veteran, his wife and 3-year-old fraternal twins that are in great need this year. They called his wife, who is Hispanic, and can barely speak English. However, words weren’t needed. The Mom opened the box of toys and cried. There was a very special doll for the little girl, arts and crafts items, and various boy toys. We were able to set them up with food and hygiene items, as well as warm clothing.
This came together because of generous people, and we are so grateful to be the conduit for the public to be able to help us help veterans.
May God Bless Us All, Everyone!
