I am celebrating my 10th year running the Holiday Program for Orange Community Services and as usual, I am so grateful to all the wonderful people who called me to participate or just donate. Every year is better than the last.
People and businesses here in Orange are so generous to my program. This is the most rewarding part of my job working for the Town of Orange, I am so proud to be part of this and helping all who are in need during difficult times for the holidays.
I would like to personally thank: Artie Dixon (local resident/musician) who runs his Holiday Party every year asking for unwrapped toys; Mike at Center Balance in Orange whose clients for the past few years have been so amazing with taking all the children’s names and donating; Church of the Good Shepherd in Orange who took all the children’s names for their wish tree and donated food bags for the families; The Orange Arts and Crafts Guild; Orangewood Women; Coldwell Banker of Orange; Orange Preschool; Orange Community Women; various Daisy, Brownie and Girl Scout Troops; Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.
Also, the Orange Republican Women, Orange Board of Ed and the Amity PTO; the Orange Democratic Women’s groups and finally Orange residents, employees and businesses who took time out of their busy lives to participate and sponsor a family or senior in our program or gave a donation. There are so many names that it would take pages to list everyone, so I apologize if I missed anyone.
Again, thank you everyone involved in donating their time with sponsoring the families in town who are in desperate need of assistance. As always the response was amazing.
Thank you all so much!
Happy Holidays Everyone
