A Heartfelt Thank You

January 6, 2012

Dear Friends:

    Happy New Year and many thanks, once again, for your generosity with our Adopt-A-Child Program. 
We had many new “adoptors” this year along with our tried and true helpers.   A hundred children were recipients.  Incredible!  Parents were over-whelmed with gratitude, many crying in my arms.  Most families also received gift cards for groceries (thanks to a local quilters club) or turkeys (thanks to Hannaford!)

    During November our district social workers and nurses worked with families to determine “needs” and “wishes” for gifts for their children.  Local businesses, Girl Scout troops, fraternal organizations, clubs, district staff and Board of Education members, fire companies, and families then adopted and shopped for children.

    Beautiful gifts arrived at the school and were shared with families.  We are so grateful to the people who adopted our Schodack kids!
