Holiday Giving

This Christmas you can give the Gift of Joy to those who need it the most.

Gift of Joy

The holidays can be a lonely time of year for those without family or friends, but you can give them the Gift of Joy while restoring dignity and self-respect.

“And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”  Luke 2:10-11
