“When I was very young, I remember that special day that came once a year right before Christmastime. My mom would wait by the window with sheer excitement for her Christmas Bureau food hamper. A very nice person would always come and ring our doorbell carrying that big box that brought so much joy to my mom. We always had the best Christmas dinner because of the delicious treats donated by really big-hearted people. I have never forgotten how the kindness of others helped my mother get through a very difficult time in our lives. I knew that one day I wanted to be able to return that joy to others, just as the Christmas Bureau did for us!”

Daisy, past client and current Christmas Bureau supporter
