Looking Back and Marching Forward


Last week Children’s Friend hosted our 13th Annual Investing in Our Children Luncheon and it was a great success.  Thank you to all our community partners for taking time out of your busy schedules and recognizing the importance of investing in the most vulnerable children in our communities.  We cannot do this important work without you.
In true Children’s Friend fashion, while we enjoy reflecting back on the positive impact that we have had with your help, we continue to march forward because we know that there are more children to serve.  In fact, we have now shifted gears and turned our focus to our 2015 Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive.  For many of our families, the holiday season can be a source of stress instead of a joyous time, and Children’s Friend looks to lessen the stress of the holiday season for our most needy families.
In looking back to our 2014 Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive we were able to sponsor 1,393 families with the help of so many individual, families, corporate and community donors, and volunteers looking to make a difference in a child’s life.
As we march forward toward the holidays, let’s make the impact of the 2015 Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive even greater.  To participate in the 2015 Holiday Drive, please go to spiritofgivingdrive.org or call the Holiday Hotline at 401.276.4346.
