At Hoyleton, we make it our goal that every child in our care has a gift to open at Christmas.
This year was different for everyone, however, Hoyleton was still able to provide 1,677 gifts to youth and families in our care. Our goal of making the Christmas season brighter for those we serve exceeded more than ever before.
In order to comply with COVID-19 restrictions, we used an Amazon Wish List to help gather some of the gifts, offered contactless gift drop off and provided more opportunities for donors to make an impact with cash or gift card donations. Our Hope for the Holidays volunteers were still able to help with modified volunteer shifts and social distancing.
We appreciate all the generosity for the Hope for the Holidays . 2020 was a year of growth for Hoyleton in more ways than one. We are hopeful that 2021 will bring continued growth and support.
The Development Department works hard to improve this process every year. If you have any ideas or feedback, please reach out to Meghan at 618-688-7092. We want next year to be even better.
