Each holiday season, generous neighbors and local businesses team up with the LCEC to provide holiday gifts, bus passes, gas cards, and other basic necessities to young people and families through our Holiday Gift Program.
This year more children and youth received gifts than ever before. Gas cards, grocery cards, and bus passes reached the largest number of families yet. And new student volunteers experienced the excitement of helping out with the festivities.
A tremendous THANK YOU goes out to the individuals, families, and groups who helped make the magic, including Capital Bank, Edgewood College, Edgewood High School, Edgewood Softball, EZ Office Supplies, John Deere Financial, Transformation Center, Tri-North Builders, and Saint Thomas Aquinas — and to the PEO Chapter shepards of our lending library who also sent home dozens of free books during Holiday Gift pick-up.
