Six of our biggest community supporters were in attendance donning their best Santa and Reindeer garb. Frost Mortgage, Attorney S. Scott Davis, Jr., RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program), Sam’s Club, Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union and, Don Chalmers Ford, welcomed, informed, and offered gifts to all in attendance.

Those that stopped by were encouraged to wrap gifts for our Low Income Food and Enrichment (LIFE) clients. Included in these gifts were warm blankets, gloves, hats, personal grooming items, large print books, puzzle books and other helpful items to keep clients occupied and warm in these wintery months. Because of generous donations through our Holiday Wish List program, for the first time in years, all of our LIFE clients received at least one gift. We thank the efforts of our attendees in helping to wrap and label those gifts.
