HOW IT ALL BEGAN!
The Joy of Giving started in 1988 with one family when the founder, Nicki Davis and a few generous volunteers had “Santa” deliver a sack full of clothes and toys to a 7 year old little girl.
Upon their arrival the little girl threw her arms around Santa and cried “Santa, Santa, I KNEW you wouldn’t forget me! Last year I waited and waited for you and you didn’t come.” This true story inspired the mission of The Joy of Giving.
Each year since that fateful day, The Joy of Giving has expanded and reached out to thousands of children with the spirit of Christmas. Volunteers work with schools and victim’s advocacy groups to identify the qualified Children.
With your gift Children receive self esteem, hope and love. They will share tales of new shoes, clothes and toys as SANTA came to their house too.
All proceeds benefit the Joy of Giving, Inc which will generously supply Christmas presents for over 1200 underprivileged local children this year. Every penny collected goes toward giving these beautiful children a wonderful holiday. We need your support.
Joy of Giving Touches Area Hearts!
