Christmas at the Women's Shelter
Christmas to most is a holiday of fun and cheer; however, there are many families who may be less fortunate where this time of year is highly stressful. Many children don't receive gifts as their parents must choose food and shelter instead of toys. The Chaney family wanted to make a difference for a few local families this holiday season. Stevenson Financial Inc, is a CSP with FedEx Ground out of Kernersville, NC. The Chaney family challenged the local operation to provide gifts for the children of Clara's House & Carpenter House which are both local Women’s Shelters and they would match our donations. These organizations offer safe shelter for woman and children that have nowhere else to turn.
Together the Chaney family and ZGRN local operation were able to provide an abundant Christmas day to these families living in the women's shelters. They received gift packages including clothes, toys, and even a few gifts for the mothers. The Chaney's and local staff helped the mothers wrap the gifts for the children, and helped the children wrap gifts for their mothers. What a success was realized when helped was given to a total of 9 families including 17 children. These families have a lot on their plates, and this was one less distraction for them to focus on while trying to get back on their feet.
