Day 11

*** Click the donate button below! ***


 It’s the day before Christmas! We realize that everyone is probably busy (just like Santa Claus) purchasing last-minute gifts and preparing everything for Christmas Day.  One year, we went to a house in Rockford, knocked on the door of the house, and after waiting a few minutes this nice lady opened the door. She said, “I’m sorry it took a minute but my kids went to their bedroom and hid because I told them Santa was coming a day early and if he saw the kids, then he would not leave the gifts.” I was bringing the gifts, which means I was Santa Claus! We left the family a food basket and a box of toys from Toys of Blount County and I remember thinking how special it was to be Santa Claus this year. Today is your opportunity to be Santa and make a donation to the Empty Pantry Fund or reach out to Toys from Blount County and give them a gift so that we can continue to be Santa for kids in the future.
