Call for Santa’s Helpers in Merrimack Valley

This just in…

The Foster Kids of the Merrimack Valley, a non-profit org dedicated to helping local foster children, is looking for Santa’s Helpers this holiday season to help fulfill a foster child’s wish list.  Thanks to the Cheryl Rock at the Lawrence Eagle Tribune who ran this article on  Monday Oct. 6th:  Wanted: A few good Santas

The Santa’s Helpers is a volunteer program designed to anonymously match up individuals or groups from the local community with one or more foster children to help fulfill their Christmas wish lists.  This program is part of the Annual Foster Kids Christmas Party organized by the FKMV, whereby age appropriate toys are distributed to local foster children along with a gift for each foster parent.

The organization started this program last year and it was such a huge success due to volunteers from across the Merrimack Valley who wanted to help bring joy to a foster child during the holidays. There are more than 200 children and their families in need this year, our largest group yet.  I have been serving on the board for two years, and this event is so worthwhile because you can see the joy on each child’s face as they open up their packages from their Santa’s Helper.

For more information, email santashelpers@fosterkidsmv.org, or contact me directly at jgrant@sentrepity.com, Facebook: Juliann O’Connor Grant.

Thanks, now back to our regular programming…
