Gifts of Hope

The spirit of giving and sharing encompasses the holiday season.  The BroadReach team took that spirit to heart this year and sponsored a family through Keystone Community Services.  This program provides clothing, household items, toys, and luxuries to families living on limited income.  We are looking forward to our next opportunity to help our community, but meanwhile… here is some of the wonderful feedback we received!

“Thank you and your family… we all very much enjoy all the clothing, snow gear, and bicycles… Made our Family very happy this year.  Thanks so much and happy holiday from our family to your family”

“As a single mother, I try to remind my children to be thankful for everything.  This Christmas was a blessing not only because of the gifts you gave our family but because you helped me show my children what giving is really about.”

“Thank you for these gifts… You’ve given me the gift of peace, the ability to take a breath and have removed the stress that this season can bring about.”
