Magic wraps up

Day Two – Caseworkers from our partner agencies continued to pick out toys to be delivered to the last of their clients before Christmas. They are thrilled that they are able to help so many of their struggling clients this year. In a year like most of us have never known, donors have become clients and already struggling clients are in even greater need. We are so grateful for the tremendous support from our donors in spite of the pandemic. Our community cares!

Kindness of children

3rd grader Saharsh Dasari stopped by with his mom Sameera today. He was dropping off new coats and gift cards that he purchased with money he collected for Christmas. He also included a handwritten note that said –

“I am a third grader, for Christmas I collected money and my mom helped me buy new winter coats for kids who do not have them. We dropped off some coats two weeks ago at the wish project, Today I am droping of 3 more also, for the wish project. I donated the toys I got for my birthday 2 weeks ago at the wish project. I hope the kids who got these for Christmas, have fun with them.”

It’s hard to know just what to say about that note. The compassion and kindness it contains is like a ray of sunshine in what has been a sad and awful year for many. It’s children like Saharsh that give us hope for the future. Teach kindness and empathy to young children and they will model it for the rest of their lives.
