🎄 Christmas Assistance Appeal for a Special Family 🎁

Dear Quilters,

I hope this message finds you well during this festive season. I am reaching out on behalf of a remarkable family who could use a little extra support this Christmas. They have faced their fair share of challenges, particularly with hearing issues, but their spirits remain resilient.

Gift Ideas for the Young Boy (Age 7):

  • Basketball or soccer ball
  • Light jacket (size 7)
  • Sneakers (size 4)
  • Pants (size 7 slim)
  • Lego sets (as he enjoys building)
  • Anything related to monster trucks

Gift Suggestions for the Mom:

  • Tops in solid colors (XL)
  • Light jacket

Every woman can use some girlie stuff

Gifts for the 20-Year-Old Son:

  • Light jacket (size large)
  • Quilt

Food and Household Items:

  • Gift cards to Publix or Save-A-Lot
  • Non-perishable food items
  • Laundry detergent and dryer sheets

The family is not particular about the items they receive, and any contribution will be genuinely appreciated.

Donation Drop-Off Details: Please bring your donations by Friday, December 15, 2023.

Your generosity can truly make a difference in bringing warmth and joy to this family's holiday season.
Let's come together as a community to spread love and make their Christmas a little brighter.

Thank you for your kindness and support.

Warm regards,

The Sweet Darling Quilts Team
