The holidays are a special time of year, but also a time of great need for many participants at Mary’s Center. Often times, Mary’s Center participants struggle to provide holiday gifts for their children or lack the resources to provide a nourishing holiday meal. Thanks to the help of many, we were able to bridge this gap for hundreds of our families in 2016 through the Holiday Drive.
In November 2016, hundreds of non-perishable food items and turkeys were collected to provide enough meals for over 300 families. The season to share continued as we began our Toy Drive in December. Thanks to the generosity of many, over 3,000 toys were collected and distributed at our Annual Participant Holiday Party.
