Costa Mesa ‘Adopt A Family’ Event update and photos

15 Jan

A very unconventional holiday party….

The 34 + Adopt families received gifts from Santa around a large wildly decorated oak tree, ate hamburgers, hot dogs & homemade baked beans with tater salad for lunch.  See the smiles for yourself:

 

Many families came to volunteers and simply stated, ‘If not for you, our kids would not have had presents this year – you ‘gave’ us Christmas’.  Thank you to each volunteer who made it happen.

Volunteers have fun at “Wrap Night”

1 Jan

There were over 120 gifts to wrap for the families of our Adopt A Family Program’s upcoming party.  We packed in 18 volunteers to power-house it!  All gifts were wrapped and ready to deliver to the December 21 Holiday party at the Costa Mesa Motor Inn.  Thanks again to all who helped. Also to  Andrea Adelson at the Laguna Beach Independent newspaper for publishing our event and giving the Treehouse great exposure to the community.
