Christmas in July was so wonderful this year. The celebration started with a delicious lunch prepared by our kitchen staff. The kids got to enjoy ice cream from Cops and Robbers. Thanks to Barry Catrell for this special treat. Afterwards, our kids opened their presents.

Thank you so much to our Christmas in July sponsors! We are forever grateful to you for bringing the biggest smiles to our kids' faces.

After working for 33 years, I retired and was extremely bored and looking to offer a heart and service to Non-Profits that touched my heart. My Granddaughters Brooke and Brandi urged me to get involved with Whaley Childrens Center. Where they worked and offered themselves in any way to help the Kids. I started sorting clothing, washing and pressing items to go in the Kids Store. AS well as other items that were donated. From there I moved on to stuffing envelopes, cleaning, and helping the staff in whatever manner they needed. I moved up the ladder to cooking Thanksgiving dinner with my friend Christine, who wanted to give back as well. Getting more involved to help with the finances at the center, lead me to offer decorating and doing centerpieces for Whaley Tux and Tennies. From that point I was blessed to help with Worlds Greatest Office Party and the Whaley Golf Outing. It was extremely heartfelt participating in Paint the Town Blue, which calls attention of the public to be aware of Child Abuse. And if You See It Say It!! Not my line but I still use it. Imagine the care given to kids in your own families as well as the cost to raise your children with what they need, not including a few things they want. Dental, medical, emotional needs as well as activities, we take for granted, that these children need to feel they are equal to the Other kids in their world. So they can feel valued and grow their lives into adulthood. The staff at Whaley are so dedicated to the kids. Their own families are amazing and giving. Volunteering at Whaley filled my heart with joy and being blessed to know the staff, especially to grow relationships with my Adopted Granddaughters in Development. I urge you to learn of Whaley Childrens Center. Call and ask for a tour. Make yourself happy by volunteering and give whatever you can to the support the forty two kids in need.
