Spreading Holiday Cheer!
Thank you to all community members, volunteers, staff, board members and sponsors who joined us for our Annual Christmas Toy give-a-way on December 14, 2018! A special thank you to Toyota Financial Services and Capital One for their sponsorship for our Christmas 2018 event. With the help of our sponsors, All Peoples was able to provide personalized gifts to more than 115 families totaling 318 children this Christmas.
All Peoples partnered with Animo Jefferson Charter Middle School to adopt 20 families for this Christmas and Holiday Season. Each family was adopted by one homeroom/advisory class who provided gifts for each family while teaching students about the value of giving back.
We would also like to Thank Farahi Law Firm for their donation of 40 additional toys for youth and families that were unable to participate in our Annual Christmas Toy give-a-way or the Adopt a Family Program.
All Peoples was also able to host our first DCFS Christmas Party for 39 foster youth and 21 foster parents and parents. Thank you to CII – Children’s Institute, ECHO – Northrop Grumman Employees Charity Organization for helping to make this possible! All Peoples Staff and Volunteers were able to provide over 370 items to families which included clothes, hygiene products and children’s toys. * **
A special thank you to Jose Figueroa, of Broadway Federal and his elves.
