Holiday Wish List 

During the 2015 holiday season we were able to provide 200 holiday gift bags to our guests filled with hats, gloves, toiletries, and other essential items for the winter season. The children's gift bags included other goodies as well, such as stuffed toys and coloring books. 
This would not have been possible without the generous donations from our holiday wish list providers. Sign up for our e-newsletter or look out for our next holiday newsletter to find out how you can help!
