This year over 100 kids received gifts due to the generosity of others. Throughout the year fundraisers help the ministry raise money for many projects including Christmas for Kids. The fundraisers alone cannot support all the children that are in need. Individuals in the community contacted SVDP council office and offered to purchase gifts for families. Groups of employees at some local businesses pooled their resources and purchased gifts for families and for a group of kids at a local housing program. Thank you to everyone that helped make this a brighter Christmas for some area children. The joy on their faces says it all.
