December News

By December 5, 2022
This time of year provides a perfect time to reflect on the year and how grateful we are for you! We are incredibly fortunate even though many of our families have experienced great diificulties. Our work continues to touch the hearts of those in our community. Many desperately need encouragement. Thank you for being that and so much more.
December is the month when gifts are given and received. For many families, the gift of friendship and encouragement can be the best gift. For others, there are distinct tangible needs… Our families are some of the hardest working individuals, and we recognize that they are trying to provide for their families – in one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S. Through all of this, they still smile, give, laugh, and are filled with gratitude because they are together.
Would you join us for one of our GU events to celebrate this opportunity to provide hope to another – and participate in our December $75,000 Match Campaign? A generous donor has made it possible to have your donation go further – by being matched dollar for dollar. Come volunteer with us as we bless many for the holidays and by signing up to spend time with children and families in 2023. These are the best gifts. You are the “best gift” to GU.

Every dollar goes a long way to help bring Christmas cheer to our students and families. It’s our joy to partner with our generous community to do this. You can help by donating any amount to the Sponsor-A-Family fund. You can even donate a holiday meal or bring a treat to share at our Christmas Celebration.

Our annual, year-end match campaign is underway and we have already raised $15,000 in our campaign! This will allow us to plan well through the holiday season and launch 2023!
We are always accepting donations from our Amazon Wish List or check the list on our donation page.

Thank you!!

We’d like to extend a BIG “THANK YOU” to all who joined us for our Thanksgiving meal. We enjoyed a beautiful time at Little Flock church with volunteers and families from our community.

As a small token of our gratitude, we put together a short video with some highlights from this year so far. Please take a moment to relive the moments from Easter, Mother’s Day, Summer, Fall Festival, Día de Los Muertos, Thanksgiving, and more.
