Heartland Auxiliary members had a great time last evening assembling Holiday Angel gift bags that will be provided to Synergy Services for their Teen Parent Support Program. Members shopped for a family that they had “adopted” at the previous meeting. Each child received an outfit, pajamas, socks, and warm hoodie or jacket, and a toy. At the meeting, blankets, all of which were made by a group of Auxiliary volunteers, books, and an ALex Operation HUG bear were added. Each parent was given a small personal item plus a gift card to Target.
The families will receive their gifts at the Teen Parent Holiday Party in December. It was a wonderful evening for members and friends as they happily came together for the same mission, to help children and adults in our community through the Operation Child in Need Program.
