Christmas Joy Spread Through Adopt-a-Client Program

Christmas Joy Spread Through Adopt-a-Client Program

Each year, it is our goal to make sure that the people we serve have gifts under the tree on Christmas morning.  Not just ANY gifts, but gifts that are chosen especially for them! For some, these gifts come from family and for others, through the Adopt-a-Client program, we are able to step in and help make a difference.  We know the joy that is found on Christmas morning, in the comfort of your home unwrapping presents and we want everyone to be able to have that experience.

Starting in November, we began asking our board members, staff, and the community for their participation in the 2017 Adopt-a-Client program. We were overwhelmed by the response and quick commitment from people to help.  With your help, we were able to provide gifts to 47 clients ranging in age from 6 to 83. As usual, the gifts were above and beyond what people asked for, many receiving sweaters, jackets, jeans, toys, DVD's, movie tickets and more!

We would also like to give a special thank you to KASH (Kroger Accounting Services of Hutchinson) for adopting two residential houses. They purchased gifts for these residents and delivered meals to them as well. Two local youth groups also participated in the program this year - Reno Valley Middle School and the Boys & Girls Club of Hutchinson.

It is incredibly heartwarming to see the outpouring of support for the people we serve. Thank you to the community, our staff and board members who helped make Christmas extra special for them this year! We appreciate you!
