November 2016 Newsletter
December 1, 2016
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with good food and special memories with loved ones. We made sure our moms had everything they needed, so they had a good holiday as well! Once again YM Unite provided turkeys along with others who donated the items to put together our Thanksgiving baskets. Our moms were very grateful and excited. Thanks to all who donated.
We have continued to support the orphanage in Haiti. Ella’s Closet has been blessed with so many clothes that we feel we should “pay it forward” to those that need it more. This will be something we would like to continue once or twice a year.
Some of you participated in our Ella’s Angels last year and had been asking if we will be doing it again. We definitely are! This year we are just going to change it up a bit. Last year, we included all registered parents and all of their children. This year we have been fortunate enough to receive a lot of donations of new toys and shoes; we chose to save them for Christmas!
Therefore, for this year’s Ella’s Closet Angel Tree, we will only be including the children of the parents that are actively participating in the classes on a continuous basis. Instead of an actual “tree,” we will be doing it all online using Sign-Up Genius. You may sign-up to be an angel for a child listed by clicking on this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d4caead28a5fe3-ellas
All items will be due by Monday, December 19. You can also look for and share the Sign-Up Genius for Ella’s Closet Angel’s Tree link on our website and Facebook pages.
Classes are still continuing with Youth Services of Palm Beach County on Mondays, Bible Study on Wednesdays and Healthy Relationships on every other Thursday. In January we are planning to start HIV Prevention, Infant/Child CPR, and Car Seat Safety. We will be having a car seat drive in the near future.
If you are in need of any gifts for Christmas, don’t forget to check out www.CLOTHED4APURPOSE.com for beautiful jewelry made by our moms as well as stylish clothing. Choose Ella’s Closet as a Cause We Love and a portion of your purchase will go to help replenish the closet and keep it running.
We hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas and remember, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”!
