Adopt a Family Holiday Store another success
Holiday spirit was in the air as we held our second Adopt a Family Holiday Store in December. We collected gift donations from several generous donors and set up a store at our 1845 Kenmore location to give families the opportunity to shop for gifts.
Thanks to our incredible donors, we were able to provide gifts to more than 150 children this year! In addition to picking out gifts, families were able to choose a homemade blanket as a family gift. Our volunteers helped families shop as well as wrap presents. Those who could not attend the event had gifts dropped off by our employees.
We would like to thank M&T Bank, Sweet Charlotte’s, BlueCross BlueShield of WNY, Millard Fillmore Surgery Center LLC, WNY Urology, Bath Fitter, Hamburg Schools and all of our employees and board members who donated. We would also like to thank everyone who gave monetary donations as well as Barb Burgstahler for making all the blankets for the families.
Finally, we would like to extend a big thank you to our volunteers who helped make this year’s holiday store possible. We can’t wait to get started on next year’s event!
