2013 Holiday Giving

MSF would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to everyone who participated in our 2013 Holiday Giving Mission. We accomplished so much with your generosity and support, bringing Christmas to three families and six community members. Your giving also helped bring Thanksgiving to PADV this year.


We’ve posted pictures on the 2013 Summary Page showing all the wonderful gifts we were able to get for the families. We’ve also added a new photo album on the website to let you all see the fun we had wrapping during what we hope is our first annual gift wrapping party. Thank you so much to our volunteer wrappers! You all did a remarkable job!

From the families:
“This was the best Christmas since we moved to America. We thank everyone that donated, picked out our gifts, wrapped them, and anyone else that helped!” Oretha

“The gifts were wonderful. The children and I loved everything! Thank you.” Ivia

From a wrapping party volunteer:
“Shannon, I’ve always heard it feels good to give!! You helped me experience such a wonderful feeling when you allowed me and my daughter to help your organization by wrapping gifts. It was such a small contribution, but it felt so wonderful seeing the pictures and knowing that we helped a little. I felt such pride when you allowed me to post them on Facebook. You and your family were such a blessing to be around; thanks for sharing them with us as well. Thank you also for getting me connected with the PADV. 2014 will be a great year of giving – My Wish. Please let me know the events throughout the year you are planning for your organization. I will most certainly do my best to be a part. Thank you!!” Ashley
