The holidays are fast upon us, which means we have been busy planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas! This year, we will be providing each family currently enrolled at Ella’s Closet with everything they need to prepare a delicious Thanksgiving meal. We are also looking forward to our annual Christmas celebration with a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. It is so exciting to see the children’s faces when Santa arrives at Ella’s Closet with all the gifts for the good boys and girls.
For the 2019 “Ella’s Angels” project, we will not have an online sign-up. We have been blessed by a local church that has adopted all of our “Ella’s Angels”; however, there will be a list of other items needed that you may purchase and donate for our families to use throughout the year. Keep an eye out on social media for this list to be posted soon!
Near the end of October, The Light House Café/Ella’s Closet applied for the Great Charity Challenge (GCC). The GCC is a relay-style equestrian jumping competition held each year in which 30 riding teams are randomly paired with 30 charities that serve Palm Beach County. The winning team of riders is awarded $150,000 for their charity partner, plus every charity selected will win a guaranteed minimum of $15,000. The drawing of the applying charities to participate in the challenge will be done in early December – we are hoping to be selected to participate in this exciting and fun evening! Stay tuned for more details if we are selected!
Last, but not least, our New Beginnings program is doing great! We have multiple moms working and attending ESOL classes! They are all excited about these new opportunities and proud of their accomplishments.
Thank you for your continuous support! We are looking forward to another joyous holiday season!
