Holiday Gift Drive “Operation Warm Fuzzies”

100_1207  Operation Warm Fuzzies & the Holiday Gift Drive a HUGE    success thanks to you!

As the 2015 holiday season approached we set the ambitious goal of collecting 1,400 soft, cozy throw blankets for our seniors.  In addition we had several hundred special requests for individual gifts that some of our clients had asked for.

We are happy to report that thanks to many generous donations we exceeded our goal by over 300 throws and were able to fulfill each and every special gift request!  This meant our elves were able to deliver the warmth and joy of the holiday season to over 2,000 clients.  Thank you to each donor and volunteer who make this dream a reality and brought the spirit of the holidays to life for seniors in our community.
