EHSI staff contributed to three local families in need of assistance for the holidays. In just a few days EHSI collected gifts for 7 kids and their parents/grandparent, food, and $475 in monetary donations.
Even before we delivered the items, two of the families expressed the deep gratitude for our kind donations. One recipient a mother with the medical issues and family with four kids said she cried when she heard that we would be helping them with their holiday gifts. Another recipient was a grandma supporting her grandson. She was equally happy and grateful since she though that her grandson would not have any holiday gifts this year since she could not afford anything for him.
Each of the three family received a family gift, turkeys with all of the fixings, can goods, fresh fruits, pies, and cookie dough with sprinkles for the kids to make. In addition EHSI matched $150 of staff donations so that each family could receive a $100 gift card to Walmart to shop for whatever they need.
Thank you to all of our staff that contributed to this great effort!
