The last two months have truly been a special time for me as I experienced Board of Child Care’s holiday traditions in action. Thanksgiving sent many a piece of pumpkin pie my way from the Strawbridge Breezeway market, and I coupled that with great, festive food enjoyed by all.
At the end of November our Baltimore honor roll students were treated to dinner out at the Olive Branch (more on that below). They deserved every sauce-covered bite for their efforts in school. Bravo!
One word best describes my first Christmas season at Board of Child Care, and that word is magical. I know it felt that way for our staff and for our youth in a very large part because of YOU, our supporters!
The volunteer Auxiliary hosted a Christmas store and Christmas parties for our children and their families. Our incredible United Methodist Church partners and gracious individual donors sponsored the vast majority of the gifts under the trees.
A big shout out to the army of volunteer elves who spent days wrapping each present just perfectly, and the hundreds of donors who pledged their aid towards our annual Christmas Appeal. Thank you to each and every one of you!
Wishing you and your family a very joyous and happy New Year
