“We rise by lifting others.” – Robert Ingersol
Following a record-breaking year in 2020, we at The Guidance Center are overwhelmed with gratitude because of the amazing response to our Adopt-A-Family Program this year! This program matches the families we serve with donors who wish to spread some holiday cheer. The joy of pairing our clients with community members and local businesses looking to give back continues to be the highlight of our year. Our donors consistently amaze us with their commitment to our community and this year was nothing short of astonishing!
Thanks to the contributions of an impressive 78 donors, we have been able to provide 90 families a bright spot in a year that has been quite challenging for most. Whether it be health struggles related to the Covid-19 pandemic or the financial and emotional hardships that many of our families face, you have helped us supply these families with the resources they need to lighten their load this holiday season.
As students return to school, children must adapt to life under a global pandemic they have little understanding of, while their parents have to constantly worry about the threat to their families’ health and well-being. Your selflessness is able to free them of one more stressor and allows them to focus on what’s truly important, spending time with their loved ones.
We are so touched by all of your heartfelt contributions. Thank you for spreading the love and sharing the gift of hope.
Happy holidays and warm wishes for the New Year!
