As most of us reflect on our Thanksgiving family gatherings, and look forward to Christmas joy, there are children in our community who need our help. These are children who have not had the advantages that made them successful in school or in our community — the children in El Dorado County Juvenile Hall.
Each month, a small group of your friends and neighbors visit the hall to make crafts, play games and give these children unconditional love. Our annual Christmas party, on Dec. 19, will feature music by the Jacksons, the Christmas story and gifts of recreational equipment for the facility. One girl, when told that she would have a photo with Santa, said, “That sounds like the best Christmas ever.”
The Juvenile Services Council of El Dorado County has served these kids for over 30 years, supporting them in academic success and encouraging them in their self-improvement efforts. Your donation could go a long way towards the future of our community.
If you would like to help the Juvenile Services Council, please send donations or inquiries to 299 Fair Lane, Placerville, 95667.
Many blessings of the season to you and all of your families.
