Operation Christmas Smiles

Reaching Out Community Services “Operation Christmas Smiles”  was a great success. It  is designed to put a smile on every child’s face that is less fortunate due to low income status. Each child met Santa and received toys along with enjoying other activities such as, Face Painting, Puppet Show, Magic Show, Children’s Choir, and Refreshments.

The event this year was quite and achievement and had lightened up the holiday mood in an economic downturn. The holidays are a time of uncertainty and hopelessness for many parents.

Kudos to Tom Neve, Director and the great staff of volunteers that brought smiles and joy to the children in our community.
