We at the Vina Moses Center have much to be thankful for. Home Depot brought paint and volunteers to our Center in October and brightened up our shopping area. It is cheerful and clean. Staff, volunteers and clients alike want to thank the folks at Home Depot for their generosity. A special thank you to Becky Gentilini for coordinating volunteers and securing donations of paint, supplies and window blinds for us. She’s now hard at work on getting and installing new carpet for us!
Each month about 1,000 people come to the Center to select clothing, toys, and household goods for their families. In the fall, 1000 children receive school supplies and clothing during the Back to School Program.
For many years, Vina Moses prepared Christmas baskets for each family. It was a huge task picking out the right toy or correct size for each child. For the 2009 Christmas season we began letting parents pick out appropriate gifts and clothing for their children. An array of toys and clothing are displayed for them to choose from. These are the items that you make available by taking tags from our Giving Trees. It is a huge success with our families and volunteers. This Christmas we look forward to being able to provide 1200 families with food and/or gifts.
We need your participation again this year. You can help families in many ways: sponsor a family, take a gift to a giving tree, donate non perishable food or volunteer your time. Information about ways to help is inside this letter.
Thank you for your time, talents, goods, and financial support. Your gifts make a difference to the families we serve and to our community. All of us at Vina Moses are wishing all of you a wonderful Christmas and joyful New Year.
