Holiday Gifts! Make the Season Merrier

The Families in Transition program is asking for help providing holiday gifts for high school students who are part of their program. These kids are sometimes excluded from other programs due to their ages and wish requests. The ITS group would like to sponsor at least one student.

Want to help? Bring $1 (or more, if you wish) to the meeting on Friday, November 15 for this worthy cause. After receiving the student's name and wish list, several ITSs will shop for gifts and wrap them. The FiT folks will deliver the gifts to the students prior to the Winter Holiday break.
