If you or someone you know is planning to sign your children up for Christmas with us, please plan to get that done this week, if possible. If you have children in the school system, please ask for a form from the school and put all the children on one form. The school will sign the form. If your children are not of school age, you will need a photo ID and proof of all household income with you to sign up. If your children are working through a Home School program, you will need a letter stating they are not providing Christmas for your child/children with the above information to sign up. Please understand we are trying to assist as many families as possible without duplication of families.

We will be closed until Monday, November 29th.

May each of you have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
