Candy Cane Connection: The Gift of Togetherness

Dear SaintA Caregivers,

Thank you to everyone who came out to this year’s Candy Cane Connection at the Italian Community Center on Sat., Dec. 9.

Rachel Castillo

Like any good holiday celebration, there was wonderful food – from the delicious breakfast prepared by Bartolotta Catering, to cookies to decorate from Grebe’s Bakery – and even better company. There were more than 350 people in attendance!

The children enjoyed arts and crafts and pictures with Santa, while everyone enjoyed the live entertainment and chair massages.

For many of the foster children and parents in attendance, the celebration was about more than the holidays; it was about being part of a larger family.

One of the greatest gifts is the support we see among all of you!

Happy holidays and see you next year!
