Dear holiday basket sponsors, donors & volunteers,
The gratitude and awe at your support this year was astounding. As I said at the beginning of the season, we really couldn’t do this work without you. Because of your support – whether you purchased gifts, donated funds, spread the word that we needed sponsors, or volunteered for assembly & pick-up days – we were able to provide holiday gifts to 230 families. That’s over 480 children & seniors in the Upper Valley! Here are just some of the kind words from the parents of families and seniors who participated this year:
“I am a single mother of two beautiful girls. Today I picked up their holiday baskets. I literally felt like a kid on Christmas as I looked through everything. I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to you all, and all the donors. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, because you have given me the chance to ensure my kids have a great day. Each item was wonderful, and I appreciate the thought, effort and generosity that was put into these gifts! I actually cried, it was pretty emotional, and I'm not sure I can find the right words. Let's just say blessed, thankful, grateful, appreciative, joyful, warm I feel very lucky to live in a community that is so caring and supportive. I pray that organizations such as Listen, can continue to provide all the amazing services they do. So many people would struggle much more if it wasn’t for you all! Merry Christmas and God Bless!”
“I wanted to write to you to let you know I really appreciate the holiday gift baskets. It helped me and my husband out a lot. I can't thank you all enough. God bless. Have a great weekend. And a wonderful holiday. Xo.”
“I wanted to say thank you for our holiday basket to whomever bought the goodies for the girls...and for you folks putting it all together! Please would you say we are grateful for all they did and for making our holidays so wonderful! I hope they have a wonderful holiday and Thank You for being so generous! I will remember them in my prayers.”
We hope you enjoyed the experience as well and welcome any feedback as we close this holiday basket season and take note for next year:
