We did it! Amazing! Hundreds of gifts were delivered in the last week because of your generous, heart-warming response to our Christmas delivery appeal.
The incredible response from our UrbanPromise supporters allowed our vans to be fueled, gifts to be wrapped, and deliveries to be made.
I wish I could share all the notes, the phone calls, the hugs, the tears and the smiles our staff have received from grateful families.
Here is one short, powerful note from an appreciative mother.
“Words cannot express nor explain the joy I feel right now…I was embarrassed by my hardship and then I let it go and gave it to God. I was no longer embarrassed and then UrbanPromise showed up to bless my family….My children will now have gifts under the tree. We will also have a blessed meal along with food after the holidays. Thank you! Thank you! I can go on forever saying saying thank you because I truly mean it!”
This is just one of hundreds of stories. I hope your Christmas was as have joy-filled, peaceful and wonderful as ours. From all the UrbanPromise staff, volunteers and children. We love you!
