Hundreds Of Volunteers Bring Christmas Gifts To Thousands Of West Michigan Families

Facebook

After the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, it’s easy to lose faith in the good of society.

But the terrible actions of one remain greatly outnumbered by the generosity of many.

Listen and follow online all week as we focus on the amazing people and events we are so lucky to have right here in West Michigan.

Hundreds of West Michigan volunteers worked for the Santa Claus Girls on Saturday, December 15, to deliver Christmas gifts to thousands of families and children in need.

400 volunteered.  Over 5,000 families and 13,000 children were served.

Mlive.com has more:

Delivery volunteers lined up early Saturday outside a former Amway distribution center on Spaulding Avenue SE. The company donated the site for this year’s effort while it awaits an $81 million renovation slated to begin early next year.

Volunteers were treated to coffee, hot chocolate and snacks provided by the Salvation Army’s emergency disaster services. They also were treated to some 450 boxes of peanut clusters provided by the Koeze Company.

Learn more about those who volunteered and those who were helped by Saturday’s Santa Claus Girls event.

Read it and think of all of the good people that we have in West Michigan and across our country.
