Project Joy

This year Jennifer and I decided to do something a little more for Christmas. Last year we talked about this and never got around to it but this year we made it happen!! Jennifer found what is called Project Joy which is out of Brookings. What is Project Joy you might ask?

Project Joy is a charitable, non-profit organization, dedicated to providing children and families living in Brookings County , who are in need, an opportunity to receive holiday gifts through the generous donations of individuals, business, and organizations.

Jennifer e-mailed them and got a list of 4 kids in need with their age and first name. We then bought each of them a toy, an outfit, a hat and gloves and a coloring book with crayons. I am going to put everything together today and drop it off. Each of the kids is assigned a number and I will put that number on the present so that child is sure to get the gifts we bought them.

Black Friday we shopped in Aberdeen to purchase everything and had a fun time doing it together. We will forsure do this again next year!!!

They have a website if you are interested in helping
