You made Thanksgiving and Christmas happen! 

Remember waking up Christmas morning and running to the tree to open your gifts? Or enjoying a meal around the table with your family? These are memories etched in your heart and mind.

You gave a child the chance to have that same wonderful experience. You also gave a parent the opportunity to create joyful memories. Whether you gave your time through volunteering, donated food or gifts, hosted a drive, or even just prayed for a family, you gave HOPE. Just like the people in this video.

Christmas is not about the food and toys. It’s about the feeling they get from knowing someone like you cares about them. With that, comes the realization that their life can be different. And that produces Hope.

Without your support, we would not have been able to serve everyone who came to us for help. We would not have been able to be Hope.

From all of us at Metropolitan Ministries, Thank You. And have a Happy New Year!

Your kindness is something very powerful. It heals souls and changes lives.

Thank you and God bless you!
