Shining Stars kids and families! Join us on December 17th, 2016 for a festive holiday celebration. We will be having a holiday feast, as well as distributing all of the toys collected throughout Colorado during the holiday season.
Often, due to the vast medical expenses of cancer or another life-threatening illness, our families struggle financially to make the holiday season joyful for their children. Shining Stars and our community throughout Colorado help by alleviating some of that financial stress. Kids are able to attend the annual Toy Party and select their own Christmas gifts for themselves and their siblings. We know this is only a small way to make the holidays more cheerful for our families. but it goes a long way in bringing some holiday HOPE!
Stars and families- look out in your email for an invitation to this joyful holiday celebration!
