Christmas Gifts for Kids
Donors Making Christmas A Bit More Special
In 2020, thanks to generous donations to Promising Futures Fund from Marsh McLellan Insurance Agency and Vanessen’s Hair Design, students at Lowell Elementary and Horace Mann Elementary received unexpected gifts. Hundreds of kids received gifts of want and gift of need to make Christmas more special for them.
In 2021, an anonymous donor contacted us with a donation of $10,000 to buy gifts for low-income kids. We identified 300 kids at as the recipients of these 600 gifts – 2 gifts per child. We shopped like crazy, recruited 60 volunteers to wrap, pack and deliver the gifts and the kids got a wonderful surprise. For some, this might be their only Christmas gift. These 300 kids were so excited and happy – making a wonderful memory for a lifetime.
