“The time is always right to do what is right.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
On this national day of service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I am thankful for the many people who support the Holiday Drive each year. The generosity and commitment needed to ensure that our most vulnerable children are supported during the holiday season is humbling to say the least.
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all who participated in the 2015 Holiday Drive. Thanks to you, 1,465 families – 4,500 children in all – were served. We could not do it without the support of the 623 individual, community, and corporate sponsors, as well as the 274 volunteers who helped make it happen. Thank you just doesn’t seem adequate in this case.
As we enter this new year, I intend to carry this tremendous effort with me as inspiration. The time is always right to do what is right – and I am so grateful that we had so many people who did just that during the holidays. Please know that you certainly made a difference!
