A Merry Christmas for All


After a fun-filled December, the Children’s Village has finally returned to a place of peace and calm.  Before the memories fade, we want to take a moment to thank you all for making the Christmas season one of magic, joy and laughter for all.

To no one’s surprise, Christmas day started before the sun was up. Over 100 children awoke with hopes of finding a gift under the tree with their name on it. Dolls, soccer balls, games and toys were all beautifully wrapped and waiting under the tree to be opened and cherished. Oh the joy of Christmas morning!

From there, it was on to our annual Christmas Pageant, where our Education Director, Chris Renno, played a very convincing Santa, and Ben Whelan, our Sponsorship Coordinator, acted as DJ. Every house performed a song or dance while the audience cheered them on.

It was a glorious day for one and all, punctuated by the sound of children shouting with joy, bright new toys making noise, dolls being dressed and redressed, and of course lots of “Ho-ho-ho’s” from Santa!

Thank you again for browsing kid’s stores, writing letters, sending Christmas cards and selecting amazing Christmas gifts that had our children saying, “Santa brought me just what I was dreaming of! How did he know?” Your efforts and thoughts gave our children another Christmas to remember!

The celebration was a perfect end to a spectacular year of making change, lifting lives and building futures. Thank you one and all for your part in making all of this possible!
