Thanks to our generous friends, four families – a total of 20 children – will have a very happy holiday season. Last month, AVLF identified deserving clients who would have trouble affording holiday celebrations this year. With wish lists in hand, volunteers from the AVLF Junior Board, Paul Hastings, Hunton & Williams, and UnitedLex went to work, and gifts began pouring in.
AVLF staff members gleefully shared carloads of wrapped presents with each family. One of the youngest recipients declared the generosity “a Christmas miracle.” Thank you to everyone who participated – as usual, we are humbled and so proud.
In addition to all the gift giving, before the New Year, Standing with Our Neighbors staff members helped coordinate a neighborhood food drive with a concerned citizen who learned about AVLF from a friend. Thanks to their generosity, five families received food that day. As AVLFer Christal Reynolds puts it, “Good things are happening in Thomasville Heights, and I’m privileged to be a part of the journey.” We couldn’t agree more.
