With the blessing bestowed on our children and care takers this past holiday season, we thought you might like to hear a little something from them:
Because of you I am thankful, grateful, humbled, and forever blessed. To all of you that truly make miracles for so many, you and all you do are appreciated.
Thank you for all you’ve done and gave to New Foundations! God bless you because you didn’t have to do all that you did but did it from your kind heart, Thank you
This is the impact you made on dozens of lives that will continue to resonate through the year!
- 63 holiday wish lists were fulfilled! The kids always wonder if making out the list is a waste of time. We tell them they might be surprised at how many people DO care for them. And when Christmas morning came, they were amazed! As we start the new year, our kids are working on their craft projects, reading new books, admiring their new clothes and shoes, and smelling great! For many, this is the first year they have experienced anything close to what you provided for them.
- A few donors really made the month of December FUN and gave us a huge head start on supplies for 2024. Bags and bags of cleaning supplies, undergarments, t-shirts, and duffle bags. One decided to just about buy out our Amazon Wish List (we have started to restock it if you want to take a look!) making the Amazon delivery person an honored guest through the month!
- Our Angel Tree donors were especially generous with specific items, as well as Gift Cards! These are especially appreciated as we can purchase sizes and items as new kids come in with nothing. (Which were able to do the first week of the new year for one young teen.)
- Two donors started something new this Christmas – one gave what they previously spent on their grown children thinking New Foundations needed it more. The other made sure to ask their employer to match their donation, doubling their contribution and impact.
