There are over 700 children at my school, most under poverty level. Each year we provide a little Christmas for kids who would not get anything at all. Please if you can (and I understand if you can't) please help us out. We will take anything from a Matchbox car to a Barbie doll...anything crayons, coloring books, games any toys. We would also love, glove, mittens hats, scarves, socks...ect. Teachers each year adopt a family or child, this year that has already happened and we have over 30 families which at this moment we can not help. Last year people who donated through here and the LODGE helped 35 families celebrate Christmas.
Here is how the "Angels" started Christine our speech therapist was working with a 5th grade student 9 years ago. The little girl told her she had never owned a Barbie doll in her life. She went on to tell Christine how her family did not have enough money so she had never recieved any Christmas presents. That year the little girl recieved 4 beautiful Barbie dolls and some clothes. At that point the Holland Loving Angels were born. Each year the amount of families has increased.
Please if you can help in any way, it would be greatly appreciated and you can know you made a child's Christmas that much better.
Please send any donations to:
