Christmas Programs Assist the Needy At This Special Time

Secret Santa's Provide "The Best Christmas Ever"

The PMC has participated for a number of years in the Secret Santa Program through the local Family Independence Agencies. Members of the office shopped for presents for specific age groups and the gifts were available for parents to come and pick from at the local agencies. This year, we were aware of a very special family that was having problems making Christmas the experience they wanted due to limited financial resources. So, we made the decision to adopt them. The family has adopted six children and has two foster children. We were more than happy to help Santa along with such a large number to provide for.

Everyone took turns doing shopping for the various children. With four of the children being teenagers, it gave a whole new meaning to "living the teenage mind" to get the children what they wanted. When friends of the staff learned about our efforts, some even assisted by donating presents. The time seems to fly, when you know that you are making a child's Christmas something special.

After the holiday, we received a number of pictures and the most heartfelt thank-you note we have ever received. "The kids were so thrilled and told us over and over that this was the best Christmas they had ever had...In this day and age, things like total strangers wanting to get involved in helping kids they don't even know, doesn't happen very often. To think that we have never even met you and that you were willing to do this for us means so much." Secret Santa programs are a great opportunity to help those less fortunate, and easy to become involved in. Think about trying it for yourself this year.
