There’s a special kind of joy when a child opens a present on Christmas morning. Help bring a piece of that magic to a child or young adult who would not otherwise have something to open. Lawrence Hall provides a safe space along with nurturing homes for children and young adults who have been removed from their birth families due to abuse and/or neglect. If you are interested in helping, please join us in taking care of a Wish List. Through this opportunity you would spend $50 per Wish List.
Simply email Julia Peterson and you will be matched with a Wish List. Each Wish List includes the person’s name, gender, and age along with their individual gift and clothing wishes. This year the greatest need is for gifts for older children and youth at Lawrence Hall. We are asking Kenilworth Union to consider making sure older kids have a bright holiday, too.
The deadline to drop off your wrapped gifts is Wednesday December 7 at Kenilworth Union Church. Detailed information will be distributed when you sign up.
Please let us know by Tuesday November 29 if you and your family would like to participate in this wonderful program. “Your” child will be forever grateful!
Julia Peterson and Melanie Earle
