Extra Service Hours--Delivering Shining Light Gifts to School

Let me begin by saying a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our Shining Light Party possible on Friday evening. You all were AMAZING last week helping us to wrap and organize gifts, and you were even MORE WONDERFUL making our holiday party fabulous for the families that were able to come. We appreciate the help of everyone who was involved because it would not have been possible without you!

BUT... the James Center still needs your help! There are still some gifts that need to be delivered to local schools. IF YOU NEED TO FINISH YOUR SERVICE HOURS THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY!! Jan will be driving the leftover gifts out to schools this week and could use extra hands. If you are interested you can email her to organize details at

Once again, we cannot thank you enough for all of your help that made our Shining Light project so successful. You all are the best!! Good luck this week and be safe traveling home to your families!

Thanks again for the participation in the Shining Light Party this past Friday! It was a huge success! Thanks to Jessica, Madison, and Megan for their hard work as the committee chairs!
