The Joy of Giving

Joy of Giving

The children of Cherokee Family Violence Center recently took part in a heartwarming program coordinated by our friends from Cornerstone Community Church’s L.E.A.P.F.R.O.G. Ministry.  According to L.E.A.P.F.R.O.G., “Christmas is the season for giving and since, ‘it is more blessed to give than to receive’ we thought that the children of Hearthstone Landing might enjoy preparing gifts for the Calvary Children’s Home in Smyrna, Georgia.”  Every child that participate in the event drew a name of a child residing at Calvary Children’s Home, chose gloves and a hat to decorate, wrap and send and enclosed a special note for the recipient.  The children enjoyed the creative activity and loved giving back to their community.

After completing their gifts, the group sang Christmas carols, enjoyed refreshments and listened to a story about the joy of giving.  It was truly a special day for the children of our program.  Thanks to Cornerstone Community Church and the L.E.A.P.F.R.O.G. Ministry for their ongoing support of our program and always finding a unique way to get involved at CFVC.  Merry Christmas!

Shop for Mom has come to represent that Christmas is officially on its way to CFVC.  On December 6th, 2015, our friends at Hillside United Methodist Church set up “shop” at Hearthstone Landing for the eighth time!  Shop for Mom allows the families in shelter and transitional housing a fun day of shopping in a special “shop” set up onsite.  Santa cannot do all of the work himself, so the elves of Hillside UMC usher the children through the “shop” and help them pick out gifts for their moms.  The children also made ornaments and family photos were taken.  Christmas can be a tough time for many families here, but Shop for Mom ushers in the fun side of the holiday – families celebrating together and creating special memories.  We thank Hillside UMC for their ongoing support through Shop for Mom.

It is Thank You Thursday and we want to highlight our friends from New Light Baptist Church who brought 26 care packages to our office this week. The care packages, delivered on December 1st, contained personal hygiene items for clients entering our emergency shelter. Many were wrapped and ready for Christmas but we know they will go to great use by our residents before then. Thank you for this useful and generous contribution, New Light Baptist Church!
