Christmas spirit . . . alive and well
For the 22nd year, on Christmas Day, over 1,500 guests will enjoy a traditional dinner—turkey, dressing and all the sides. Volunteers will begin at 6 am Christmas morning, and before the day is over, nearly 450 volunteers will have escorted guests, served dinner, cleared tables and passed out gifts to children and their parents plus anyone else who shows up at the Covington, Kentucky Convention Center. Gifts include personal care items such as shampoo and deodorant, plus diapers and baby items, as well as underwear, hats gloves and coats, all of which are donated. Santa always visits with gifts and each child leaves with a toy and photo to mark the occasion.
Collecting donations, assembling, staging and wrapping begins, of course, in January when the process repeats itself. Fabulous-Furs is privileged to have helped for the past few years, donating this year nearly 4,000 coats, accessories, blankets, hats & gloves. We join many other companies, large and small, who make possible an event that represents the true spirit of the season.
We may be awash in negative news, but this season I’ve loved hearing an inordinate number of uplifting instances of generosity and random acts of kindness. Just wanted you to know that it’s because of our lovely customers that Fabulous-Furs can be generous. Without your support and loyalty, our company could be an unfortunate statistic of a struggling economy. Instead, we’re thankful for our jobs, our country’s many freedoms and the love of our families and friends. Wishing you and yours all the blessings of the season.
Best Wishes & Happy Holidays -
