You gave them a Christmas!

Posted on December 26, 2016

Remember what it was like seeing a wrapped gift under the tree? Touching it, smelling it, and shaking it much to your parents’ chagrin. Your imagination would run wild with the possibilities as to what it could be. It’s a memory etched in your mind and your heart.

You gave a child that same wonderful experience through your support. Whether you gave a gift of your time, made a donation, hosted a drive, or prayed for a family. You gave HOPE. Just like the people in this video.

Thank you for giving the gift of imagination. Food and toys are not what’s most important to our families. It’s the feeling they get in knowing someone like you cares about them. With that, comes the realization that their life can be different. Thank you for being their HOPE.

We were able to serve everyone who came to us for help, thanks to YOU.

Happy New Year from all of us at Metropolitan Ministries.
