Toledo Christmas Angels

Last year my friend Deana wanted to help three families who were struggling at Christmas. She was able to get friends and family to help with donations, buy gifts, donate food for both the party and for families to take home; all within a weeks notice. Estella, Rebecca, and I, gave our time help Deana at the Christmas party and saw not only the joy on the children's faces, they felt the appreciation of the parents and the warmth in their own hearts and the calling to create Christmas Angels, in the hopes to help needy families every year.

We hope that you will see it in your heart to help us reach our goal. If we surpass the monetary goal, we will use the excess to help another family.

Thank you and God bless!

Deana, Estella, Rebecca and Angie

Purpose:

Why do we exist?
We exist because there is a need, not only for parents who are struggling to provide the basic necessities but for the parents that can provide nothing more than the basics.

Life can be hard. We have the unique opportunity not only to make it a little easier but to remind someone that there are people who care, and are willing to lend a hand when they can.

The Business Statement:

We intend to provide a celebration of family, with food, music, crafts and gifts. The holiday season creates much stress and anxiety. Our goal is to lessen the burden of a few families, while showing them that there is kindness, love and compassion left in the world. We also hope to show them that people do understand how hard things can be and are willing to lend a helping hand.

Values:

We are four Catholic Women, promoting love, kindness, acceptance and understanding through a celebration of Christmas.

Sounds like a nice idea. I appreciate the fact that you want to provide music and crafts in addition to gifts (and family feasts).

Thank you Viola. Last year was such a blast.
The monetary donations were to help with items for the family. We are also looking for items to be donated, gently used items such as:

Christmas Trees
decorations
bulbs
lights
garland
wrapping paper

Our idea is to be able to decorate and give each family a tree also. And the wrapping paper is to, well wrap the gifts.

If any TTer's would like to donate such items that would be blessing. Just leave me a message and we can arrange for pick up.
