We received the following message from Erika Parmelee, Family Liaison with Communities In Schools Renton at Honey Dew Elementary, after delivering our Christmas Giving Tree gifts to her office this week:
"I’m sorry that I missed the gift delivery on Tuesday. I am so thankful that you brought everything over and I was able reach out to families quickly. I do hope that you are happy with yourselves because you made several grown adults cry. :)
As I sorted them out by family I was overwhelmed with your generosity. When families came to pick up the gifts several of the moms said that it must be a mistake -- it is too much. They conveyed to me how blessed they feel. You have taken the time to ensure that not just one family but four families feel surrounded with love from their community. Thank you for helping them have a very Merry Christmas!
I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas as well! Erika"
