Because of you, gifts were provided to children who came into CPS custody right before the holidays. Volunteers were able to give the kids in our toy drive section, which gave children the chance to receive what they really wanted this holiday season. Children like 8-year old Patricia who can not stop singing songs on her new karaoke machine. Children like 12-year old Malik who received a brand new skateboard and has already learned new tricks. Children like 15-year old Kia who is reading her second book on her new Kindle. Children like 7-year old Roberto who will not leave home without his new remote-controlled helicopter. These are just a few examples of the magic you shared with our kids this holiday season. Thanks again for your help in making a difference in the life of a child. Sincerely, Suzanne Ronne, Community Outreach Director Kendall Pace, Special Projects Coordinator
