Home for the Holidays Campaign

St. Mary’s kicked off a holiday giving initiative, “Home for the Holidays” to help provide a happier and healthier holiday for special needs children and their families, many of whom are struggling to make ends meet in these difficult economic times.

Thanks to the overwhelming support of our community, St. Mary’s was able to provide 4,000 children and their families with holiday gifts of toys and gift cards along with necessities such as food and clothing. The true essence of holiday spirit was heightened as local retailers jumped onboard with special promotions, large corporations held food and clothing drives at their offices, and schools and individuals joined in by hosting events and gift drives to help raise funds and awareness.

Thanks to all of our supporters for helping St. Mary’s families celebrate the holidays with health and happiness!
