A Bright Start to the Holidays

For elementary school students, the holidays can truly feel the most magical. They are at that perfect age where they are old enough to understand the concept, but young enough to still believe in the magic. On Team Kid, we have 3 education team members that have made it their personal mission to ensure the elementary students we serve feel surrounded by the magic and excitement of the holidays. Meet Karla, Ruth, and Liz. This dynamic team is constantly working together to develop programs, curriculum, build support networks, and create Holiday MAGIC #forthekids.

This year, Project Hope Alliance debuted a new Hope for the Holidays program, allowing our parents to choose gifts for their kids from Santa’s Workshop. In order to decide what gifts were must-haves for the workshop, Karla, Ruth, and Liz stepped up the challenge. They worked together to hand-select every gift featured on PHA’s Amazon Charity Wishlist. For the last few weeks, it has felt like Christmas every day at Team Kid’s Costa Mesa headquarters, seeing the Amazon packages arrive. Without the care, attention, and thoughtfulness our education team put into making the list, this project would not have happened. Thanks to their hard work, our kids will have the wonderful holiday memory of unwrapping a brand new toy, handpicked with love, just for them. We are giving more than just gifts this year. We are giving memories, magic, and HOPE.
