Nearly SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS EXTRA in gift cards!!!!!!!!! Can you believe it?????
This fabulous bonus allowed us to help quite a few other families with their Christmas wishes.....with some cards leftover to put into our emergency fund for 2015 when families need help with something. If there was ever a doubt....there isn't anymore. You have FILLED THIS SCHOOL WITH LOVE! Thank you so much!!

How many families were helped by the kindess of others??

*57 ten dollar gift cards were given to our backpack families.

*Eight families were "adopted" by local churches with a connection to Randolph.

*Five families were helped with Christmas spending money thanks to two anonymous donors who are friends of Randolph.

*Eight families received gift cards today to help with holiday shopping.

*One family was adopted by a Randolph supporter for Thanksgiving wishes AND Holiday wishes.

*And the kindness will continue in 2015.
