Good Shepherd Sponsor a Family Program

Now that we're getting close to Christmas, my colleagues and I at work have been thinking about how we can spread a little holiday joy in the city.

In leau of the annual Secret Santa (which apparently used to be quite cruel, with people trading gifts and taking the good ones away, and one person's sad little gift is always left over for the unlucky last person) we have all decided to sponsor a local family through the Good Shepherd.

This program gathers money and puts together a package for a family including a full stock of food and gifts for the kids. I'm really excited to be a part of something so cool. And of course, my friend Lindsay and I are heading up the project, collecting donations and getting people involved. Our company is going to match whatever amount we can gather, so we may be able to sponsor a few families! But it will be pretty great knowing that at least one family here will have a better Christmas this year.

  1. This is a very nice thing to do - our place collects food for the food bank.
