Update Joy to the Children 2009 Preparations

Dear Friends,

Joy to the Children, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization that provides a Christmas Day celebration for Nassau County children and their families who need assistance.  Because of you, economically disadvantaged children have participated in this celebration for the past 14 years!  You have been the heart of this occurrence by your generous donations of time, talent, and monetary commitment.  Thank you so much.

As you may know, Joy to the Children, Inc. has expanded its outreach year-round to children in need, but our primary goal remains making Christmas Day one of gifts (toys, clothing, toiletries and educational items), a full holiday feast, and entertainment for these youngsters and their families.

We are fortunate to again be able to host this event at Yulee Middle School.  Many volunteers, businesses and restaurant owners, educators, agency directors and others have been in full gear making preparations so that this Christmas day will be the best ever for our children in need.

Joy to the Children, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization, so patron donations have tax-deductible benefits.  Needless to say, we need you again!  Your cash donation, in-kind donation of supplies, and/or your time and talent all will benefit in the success of this program.  Joy to the Children is truly a celebration of the “spirit of giving” that lives within all of our hearts.

If you have any questions about how you can get involved, or if you wish a speaker for your group or organization, please do not hesitate to call Dawn Grant, Caroline Tunkel or me.  The Board of Directors of Joy to the Children, Inc. thanks you and wishes you a very happy holiday season!
