1/26/2023 We are pleased to report that we again had a very successful 2022 “No Child Without a Christmas” campaign. We were able to assist 244 children in 92 Canton families. Our success, year after year, is the result of hundreds of generous community members and businesses coming together to help provide our children with a joyous holiday season. Because our benefactors are too numerous to mention individually, our thanks go out to everyone who:
- Purchased and donated toys, gift cards, toothbrushes and paste, or other items for our campaign
- Sponsored one or more of our children
- Sent us monetary donations to help fund the food gift cards for our families (our biggest expense)
- Awarded us grants from your organization or business
- Organized gift drives or fundraisers for our benefit
- Donated food items during our November Holiday Market Food Drive
- Volunteered to help us analyze each child’s gift bag
- Moved all 244 gift bags wherever we needed them to go
- Packed 92 family food boxes
- Volunteered to be an Application Pick-Up place, or
- Gave us discounts on our printing needs.
Our campaign would not have been a success without all of you! No matter how you helped us, THANK YOU on behalf of our Canton children and their families!
