Secondly, the amount of food that came in allowed us to really bless our community. Over $50,000 in food was distributed. Most families received two or three boxes to get them through this holiday season. One lady, upon receiving 2 large boxes, became emotional and was very grateful for this moment of light in her rather gloomy experience. We also distributed over $25,500 in gifts. Many of our friends can't afford regular life, let alone Christmas gifts for their kids. Parents show amazing gratitude, when they are able to give their kids gifts.
On top of all this good news, an anonymous donor offered us $10,000 if we could find someone to match it This week, a matching donor came forward! I can't wait to see what the new year will bring. Have a Merry Christmas.
