Happy Thanksgiving from Children Rising
By Jim Wambach | November 28, 2019
As we gather together with our families and friends at Thanksgiving, I am once again struck by what a unique and wonderful holiday this truly is.
Gratitude abounds throughout the year. But on this special day, we break bread with our loved ones and share that spirit with one another.
Your generosity does not go unnoticed.
I see it in the smiles on the children’s faces as they become more confident in their math and reading skills.
I see it in the way our youth proudly share with me their experience at their summer internships.
I see it in the thousands of families who are provided nourishing food on the weekends, so their children don’t go hungry.
And the entire Children Rising team feels it each and every time the children are blessed with your gifts of time, talent, and funds. The Children Rising community is a truly special one, as we all work together to empower so many vulnerable children to rise to their God-given potential.
As we approach the last week of our “I Want To Soar” Project, we are grateful for your continued support, and for the support of our community partners.
At Children Rising, we are poised to make sure that every struggling child is reached by a caring community at a critical time in their life to nurture hope, the courage to dream, and the opportunity to thrive.
I am grateful to be a small part of this effort. You are making a real difference in the lives of the kids we serve.
For the children,
