Good morning Bloggers, it’s time for another edition of Thank You Thursday!
Today we’d like to thank our partners and friends at WUSA9 for helping us Give Joy this holiday season! With the help of evening anchors Debra Alfarone and Jan Jeffcoat, not to mention the team of producers, social media mavens and camera men we were able to broadcast our message of self-reliance, dignity and hope to thousands of WUSA9 viewers and the response was overwhelming!
Nearly 1,000 new toys were delivered to our program sites in time for Christmas. More than 60 new donors helped us raise nearly $9,000 and make this one of the most successful 5 Weeks of giving yet! We can’t thank WUSA9 and their viewers enough for helping us answer the Call to Care!
Check out some of the photos from our program sites below and if you would still like to help us Give Joy throughout this holiday season you can Text CARE to 80077 to donate $10 today!
