Video: These Smiles Made Christmas More Memorable

In the blink of an eye, the most wonderful time of the year comes and goes, but we hold onto the memories made to savor for a bit longer.

The level of excitement felt at our Out of School Time program’s Christmas celebration was a priceless gift in itself–and it was one that even caught the attention of some local news stations.


Our supporters generously handpicked presents to donate to our Christmas Drive, ensuring that every participant at Episcopal Community Services had a gift to unwrap during the season of giving. Thank you for helping make their Christmas wishes come true.

What continues to make our gift drives so special is that we ask each participant directly what they would like or are in need of. (Think toys, games, bicycles, musical instruments, household items, cold weather gear, clothing, gift cards, and more.)

As we hold onto the memories created this past year, we’ll be replaying the looks of pure joy on these kids’ faces that the news cameras captured. And for that, we have you to thank.

Happy New Year. May 2018 continue to bring happiness and warm memories.
