Happy New Year from Chicktime San Antonio! We hope your Christmas was filled with joy in celebration of our Savior’s birth.
In December, we did not host a Chicktime event due to the full schedule of holiday activities on Boysville’s calendar. But, this time Boysville treated us! Several Chicktime volunteers that sponsored Christmas gifts for Freeman Cottage were invited to a Christmas Pageant and Stocking Party. We had a fantastic time watching the pageant that was comprised of comedy, dancing, singing, musical talent and a fashion show. Afterwards, we had dinner with the teen girls in Freeman Cottage followed by a gift exchange. It was an amazing experience to be welcomed into their home and treated like family. We will not soon forget that day.
Looking back, we think that 2016 may have been one of our best years yet! In January, we began our partnership with Boysville. It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year because we have already formed such strong bonds with the teen girls that live there. In spite of the circumstances that have brought them to this children’s home, they continue to impress us by how sweet, polite and positive they are. Every month we receive a packet of hand-written thank you notes and they are always excited about the activity we have in store for them the next month.
We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to work alongside many of you this past year. A huge THANKS to all of you who gave up your Saturday mornings to come out and volunteer—especially those of you who led one of our monthly activities. Without you, we would not be able to carry out our mission. We are particularly grateful for those of you who joined us for the first time this year. We feel like many of you are already old friends! If you have not joined us yet, what are you waiting for?
As the New Year rolls in, we wish that all of you could experience the joy we have received from the work we do at Chicktime. If you are not sure how to get started, please email us and we’d be happy to tell you more.
Letty, Donnette & Annette
