Cross Holiday Toy Program

CHMG families volunteered both Friday & Saturday at Cross Holiday Toy Program. What an honor to shop with these parents who are struggling to provide a Special Christmas for their families. There were hugs, laughter, kindness, tears, & smiles of gratitude!
“even the smallest stone makes a ripple in the water”
Thank you CHMG Families for creating a ripple effect… your giving of time & showing kindness makes a difference!

Ronald McDonald House

CHMG went back to the Ronald McDonald House and served a meal to the families living there. Meeting these families and talking to them about their stories was both heart breaking and inspiring!!! Some of these families have been living there for 9 months! What we continue to learn in these moments is that most people struggle and all it takes is a little time to simply listen to their story and give them a hug!!! We continue to feel so blessed by these opportunities to do a little bit of good!!!
Thank you to all our CHMG members who provided food and came out to help!
Special thank you to the Thayer Family who’s personal experience at the Ronald McDonald House brought so much great energy & kindness to the evening! You are an amazing family and I felt honored to have you join us❤️
