The spirit of giving is part of what makes the holiday season feel warm and festive, not only for those who receive gifts, but especially for those who give. Every year, through our Hope for the Holidays program, we get to see generosity touch the hearts and lives of those in need as we match donors to those SBCS serves that may not otherwise receive gifts. In 2021, we partnered with local organizations and donors to grant wishes for 255 families, including 600 children through Hope for the Holidays.

As we extend our deepest thanks to those who made this possible, we also wanted to share some of the smiling faces and notes of gratitude that have warmed our hearts well into 2022.

A special thanks to the folks at Orangetheory Fitness Eastlake, who astounded us by providing gifts for more than 200 families. Incredible!

Our gratitude to the warm-hearted individuals and organizations who contributed presents and monetary donations to this year’s program:
