Holiday Cheer

Each year, we know that some of our families will struggle to put gifts under the trees for their children.

At our midtown site, Early Head Start provides at least one gift for each child enrolled through their program. In addition, students from St. Ann’s School in Stoughton usually pay a visit and bring gifts for every child in the building.

Staff at our east side site were planning to pool their money to provide gifts for their children as well. However, we were contacted by two different individuals who wanted to provide gifts for children at this location.

School of Human Ecology student, Nathanael Ruiz organized a toy drive on campus. He and Dr. Amy Wagner dropped off gifts for families to choose from. We also received donations from First Weber Realtors.

One of our staff commented, ‚ÄúMadison is such a generous community.‚ÄĚ These generous donations definitely made the holidays brighter for our children, families and staff!
