Before the “Change Their Holiday” initiative, many were faced with their children not receiving a visit from Santa Claus or being able to prepare a meal on Christmas Day. Through a cooperative effort with Jobs & Hope West Virginia and the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission (WVSSAC) along with major corporate sponsors, families throughout the state received an average of $1,200 in gift cards from Walmart, ParMar, Mountaineer Marts, and McDonald’s.

We are extremely ecstatic to announce that our “Change Their Holiday” initiative raised over $50,000 in just three-and-a-half weeks leading up to the holidays! A very special thank you to all who donated.
