Merry Christmas!!

~6th Annual~
“For the Warmth of the Children” 2010
6 years ago, when I was 8, I started a fundraiser to help collect and donate Gloves, Hats, and Socks for children who are in need for the winter months. Every year something amazing has happened as we donated these items. Together, as many of you have donated in the past, we have touched hundreds of little kid’s lives. They need these items! I appreciate each of you for helping me in the past 6 years. It’s amazing what can happen if we each donate just a little. Every year it seems to become more and more special as we hear the stories of the families and children who are on the receiving end of this fundraiser. This year again, they will be given to the children within our own Jordan School District along with the socks being donated to the refugee’s from war stricken countries who now live in Salt Lake City.

We are currently asking for donations of new or gently used Hats and Gloves and NEW Socks only.


Thank you all and remember:
“Great opportunities to help others seldom
come, but small ones surround us daily.”
Merry Christmas!
