04 Mar Donations Help Children Stay Active During Holiday Season
Organization: Santa Claus, inc.
Lives Impacted: 100
As told to Good360 by Santa Claus, inc.
Santa Claus, Inc. located in San Bernadino, CA has a Youth Enrichment Services (YES) yearly program that has provided new toys, quality new clothing, shoes and socks, new books, coats, quilts, school supplies, and personal care kits for over 100,000 underprivileged children each year! Our focus is to provide critical services to children through a variety of yearly and seasonal community-based programs. Through our programs we are empowering children by strengthening the family unit and helping the parents to provide gifts for their children during the holiday season.
We were so thrilled to receive the donation of bouncy balls, because we were able to distribute all the items to many nonprofits within the area. Thanks to this donation from Good360, we distributed the bouncy balls to the children in our organization who were not likely to receive gifts this year. Over 100 balls went to a local day care center for low–income parents as a gift to the children, and one mother exclaimed that now her child has something to play with, and he can finally play outside rather than sit and watch tv all day.
We appreciate gifts like these because even though the items might not be expensive, they bring meaning and joy to a child in need. Thank you again Good360 for keeping our children in your thoughts!
