Christmas

Christmas is for kids – big and small!

2015 was an incredible year of doing great things for daniel’s kids.
 Thank you to Lennar Homes for sponsoring the parties for the Kids on Campus and the Youth at Independent Living Village.
Destiny said it best, “I’ve never felt the spirit or excitement at Christmas like most kids do.
I did this year!”

2014 Campus Party 
 I  just received the list of “wishes” for the kids at daniel and when I say Santa will be busy, I mean Santa will be very busy! Each year the kids on campus get to ask for 2 “wishes” or gifts for Christmas and we work hard to find people in our community to fulfill those wishes. If you or your company are interested in helping this Christmas, please contact me at judy@judyhicks.com. There are instructions and it’s easy and fun!Christmas for the kids at daniel is always a big deal! It could not happened again this year without kind spirits and generosity.
Partnering with the Sales & Marketing Council of the Northeast Florida Builders Association in addition to community & corporate sponsors helps us to fulfill the wishes of the kids living in Daniel’s Therapeutic group homes and Residential Treatment Center and the youth in Daniel’s Project Prepare that live in the community  and at Independent Living Village.  
The anticipation builds to the day that we have the Christmas party for the kids where they receive 2 presents. This event shows the kids that our community cares about them and it gives community members an avenue for doing good. They can customize their giving to meet their ability to give.
We begin working on the Wish Lists at the beginning of November and with the help of so many the children and you will have a great Christmas.  
Special thanks to Jessica Verseput for planning the party each year and to Chef Cheryl for the food that EVERYONE raves about!
