Katie loved Christmas. She loved everything about the holiday season, and would be the first in the family to begin celebrating. Christmas songs, movies, cookies, crafts, activities, obnoxious decorations - she loved it all! We want to honor Katie and her love of this season by bringing joy to families who are struggling, whether due to financial stress or loss of a loved one. Rather than collect gifts, we are collecting items that help bring families together, delivering joy and hope during this season. Please consider donating as a way to honor Katie and her selflessness.
