Will had never received presents under the Christmas tree. His young life was broken by abuse and neglect. But Olive Crest found him a strong, loving family just before the holiday and provided presents donated through our Be the Miracle program: skateboards, water guns, and video games. His new family wrote his name in extra-large lettering on his gift tags, so he would know he was remembered. Will held back from the tree Christmas morning, wide-eyed and hesitant, but a smile soon appeared as he picked out his first gift, with the joy of 11 Christmases missed.
Help make this Christmas a time of joy and what may be a first for thousands of children in our community...a happy holiday full of blessings.
