Delivering Christmas!
Last Sunday, we shopped at the Peoria Walmart for our "adopt a family" Christmas project. We also wrapped the gifts at Sammie Tiller's home (Dave & Sandi live there too!). On Monday, I delivered the gifts to the case manager (Abegail N.) at the Peoria office of the Division of Developmental Disabilities, and she in turned delivered them to the family that morning.
We provided the family with a full Christmas dinner (Turkey, side dishes, treats) and a shopping cart full of useful items from their wish lists. The money came from club members' personal donations ($360) and an anonymous community donor ($150). In total, we spent $510.
Much thanks to all who participated; the family was truly blessed by our efforts.
