Christmas Eve will find me where the love light gleams, I’ll be home for Christmas if only in my dreams.
What gets you in the spirit of the season? Do you take your children to look at Christmas lights, decorate your house while sipping on eggnog, or watch your favorite holiday movies while snuggled up in matching family pajamas? For many, a month’s worth (or more) of effort goes into orchestrating the perfect holiday. For the ladies of Hospitality House, the search for stability continues while their neighbors and friends decorate their trees. They make countless phone calls trying to find an affordable apartment or a job that can support them. Our residents rely on our staff, volunteers and donors to make their holiday special so they may continue their efforts.
Staff helps residents decorate to make the shelter feel more cozy and festive, and volunteers provide delicious homemade dinners nightly, but there are some things you can do to go above and beyond this time of year. Our donations needed lists are carefully crafted with the health, safety, and happiness of our residents in mind. This particular month, though, we request a bit more. We ask that you throw in a bit of Christmas magic to make the love light gleam here at Hospitality House.
With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we understand that it might be easier to shop from home. We would like to invite you to check out our Needs List on Amazon, and have your donations delivered directly to Hospitality House.
If you’d like to gift Hospitality House with a little extra at no cost to you, you can make purchases through smile.amazon.com and select Hospitality House as your chosen organization. Find out more here.
