Through our sponsors’ generosity, we have been able to provide Christmas Joy to 216 families (the “16” doesn’t escape our notice)! That is the largest number of families over our 23 years!
Santa also brought gifts to, wait for it, …. Between 650-700 children! Our count maybe higher as we “found” other kids in the camps we were in.
We raised close to $15,000, which is just remarkable!
Which of course allowed us to move ahead with the large family numbers.
We have funds available to pay our utilities & fuel costs for our volunteers’ vehicle.
We had a healthy influx of new donors, private, church, & corporate. We will recognize them all in the New Year.
Our volunteer Elves managed to wrap, tag & bag all 650+ gifts a full week before distribution/delivery was upon us. Every year they continue to amaze through innovative, efficient skills!
On behalf of our team, children, & families in Eastern Navajo
Merry Christmas to those near & far
And a most bodacious 2017!
Kathy Spitz & NCD Elves
