2017 Christmas Project - Buckner19 Dec 2017
Dear Fellow Applied Employee,
Thank you so much for your donation to Applied Family 2017 Christmas Project. Because of your generosity, together we raised $16,105. While that is tremendous, what’s most remarkable is what could be accomplished with those funds.
Together we were able to supply 101 kids with toys, clothes, bikes &/or powered ride-ons, as well as 20 families with a household gift & laundry basket full of supplies. We were able to provide a total of 20 families with a grocery gift card that they can use for Christmas dinner &/or to stock their pantry. Additionally, 30 families received a Family Fun Night Package consisting of a Board Game, Christmas Themed Movie & Popcorn/Snacks.
One of the special aspects of the Buckner group is that these parents are participating in programs to better their life situation & help with parenting skills. These parents “earn” these gifts through points awarded for completion of the various pieces of the program. In addition to helping families that may be going through a temporary hard time, Buckner helps families that have the potential to stay in the system to become self-sustaining and not to make welfare a lifestyle. Buckner’s program would not work without your generosity. We are grateful for your help to reach these families.
As we spend time with family & friends this Christmas, may we count our blessings & remember the real Reason for the Season. God Bless you this Christmas Season & throughout the New Year.
