With fall on the horizon and holiday celebrations ahead, WVCS is preparing for our annual season celebrations, like our annual Gift of Hope, which provides thoughtful and meaningful support to our clients. This treasured event invites the community to help economically disadvantaged individuals and families celebrate the holiday season, providing joy and hope at a time when it is most needed.
After two years of holding the program remotely due to COVID-19, we are delighted to announce that this year’s Gift of Hope program is scheduled to be an in-person event on December 10th. Volunteers are encouraged to join us to see firsthand the smiles of clients of all ages as they come to pick-up their gifts of clothing, toys, and household items - things our families need but cannot afford.
This year, the Gift of Hope program is expected to serve almost 1000 unhoused and low-income men, women and children. Living in poverty is difficult on a daily basis - especially in our region where the cost of rent, food, and gasoline are so high - but the holidays are especially hard for our clients as they are reminded of all the necessities and gifts for their families that they are unable to afford. This event would not be possible without the community’s support, especially all the individuals, families, service clubs, and corporate teams that join together to adopt families and help make holiday wishes come true!
