On December 18th, 2010,Reason to Give hosted its 3rd Annual Holiday Celebration for all past, present, and even some future program participants. Lafayette Elementary School generously donated their auditorium for the day. We had over 200 participants in attendance.
Everyone received tickets to shop the free stores. Families went home that day with winter coats, hats and gloves, clothing, shoes and boots, home goods, and every kid got a great toy! Participants also had their family portraits taken and were able to call anywhere in the world to wish their loved ones happy holidays. In an effort to launch our new Adult Education Workshop Series, we raffled off gift cards throghout the day. Families brought food to share and everyone had a great time.
This event could not have been possible without the generous help of so many. We would like to thank everyone for making this event our best ever!
