As a nonprofit, it is gratifying to witness first-hand the generosity of people, businesses and organizations throughout the year. This generosity is magnified over the holiday and Christmas season, and the beneficiaries are often moved to tears when they are presented with gifts for their children and food for their tables.
The Child Abuse Prevention Council, because of the support and giving spirit of St. Joseph’s Medical Center staff, the Stockton Chamber of Commerce’s Green Team San Joaquin, the staff and members of the Builder’s Exchange, Diede Construction, AMR, Ciara Gifts, Calone and Harrel Law Firm, United Rental, California Highway Patrol and the Leo Club, was able to brighten the season for children who otherwise would not have experienced a joyous Christmas.
The CAPC would especially like to recognize the San Joaquin Fairgrounds for their logistic support. The fairgrounds provided a free space to collect, organize and disseminate the gifts for each family — no small feat considering that more than 1,500 gifts were part of that exchange!
On behalf of the children and families that we serve, the CAPC extends grateful thanks to those individuals, businesses and organizations that step up year after year to give children and families a Christmas to remember. Your kindness is greatly appreciated by many who may not have the voice to tell you!
