We had a Merry Little Christmas at New Life on December 13th. So many volunteers joined us at the Canyon Lake Chapter to bring the spirit of giving and Christ to the 80 girls residing at the New Life Children’s Center.
Praise and worship raised the roof of the gym with a fabulous praise band leading us in songs of the season. Delicious holiday goodies were enjoyed by all; flowing chocolate fountain, homemade candies, cookies, sandwiches, punch, and hot chocolate. Then, the exciting visit from Santa Clause! Each girl received an individual photo with Santa to keep and save in their own Christmas frame that they made themselves. Other fun activities served as ice breakers; each of us wrote 3 words on our name tag and people had to guess what animal your words described. Always fun and inspirational is the paper taped to your back where people wrote positive comments about you. Best of all, each girl received a gift to keep. The gift consisted of a colorful gym bag filled with body lotions, snuggly socks, and a Chicktime sweatshirt.
Lori, Carolyn, Sandra, Liz, and Lisa want to say a big thank you to all the volunteers who came to enjoy our Christmas celebration with the girls at New Life. Blessings for a wonderful New Year and hope you will join us for our January event.
