We all look back on our Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family, counting our blessings, even as we remember those in our nation and elsewhere who live with much less. The upcoming Christmas season fills hearts with hope for a better life.
At the El Dorado County Juvenile Hall, the Juvenile Services Council is planning a Christmas party on Dec. 20 for those youth who will be spending their holiday there. Our local Jackson musical group and Pastor Bob Olmstead of the Federated church will share their talents with the kids. A tree is donated, and special refreshments are shared. The Council provides gifts to help in the recreation program of the Hall, selected by the staff.
We would appreciate your joining us in this celebration of the holiday by sending a monetary donation to: JSC, Juvenile Hall, 299 Fair Lane, Placerville, 95667.
ln 1981, we had our first organized program at the Hall, and continue to welcome new volunteers. JSC aims to help youth regain their self-esteem through dialogue and creative activities, helping them become useful, productive members of society. We serve an average of 1,000 children annual yat an important juncture in their lives. We have recently expanded
our efforts to serve those in the South Lake Tahoe facility.
Thank you most sincerely for supporting our kids who need all the love and encouragement we can give them.
A blessed Christmas season to all.
