To see the smiles on children’s faces is what warms the hearts of our board members and supporters. We can all remember a holiday moment in our homes. Through our Holiday Adopt a Child program, we strive to help create those moments for our communities’ children. From dolls to roller skates, books to read, and clothes for teens — our Holiday Adopt a Child program has grown every year.
Helpful Hands, Inc. Board Member Mary Pando has introduced a new donation program this year (2016) between our non-profit organization and the WAIT League for our Holiday Adopt-a-Child Program to help provide a “Special Christmas” for children and families in crisis in our community. Helpful Hands, Inc. partners with Boys Town Central Florida, Seminole County Public Schools, and local churches to help the neediest children in crisis, their siblings, and their families for Christmas.
