PRESS RELEASE: SECRET SANTA SPONSOR OPPORTUNITES FOR THE CHILDREN’S STUDY HOME
Springfield, MA – Secret Santa is the most robust volunteer effort at The Children’s Study Home (CSH). With the community’s efforts, CSH has been able to put smiles on children’s faces and help families feel the joy of winter gift giving for 154 years running! This being the 155th year, during a pandemic with more families in need, CSH is hoping to surpass last year’s 425+ children having their wishes granted.
With Secret Santa, CSH begins the journey to ensure hundreds of children throughout our schools in Springfield and the Berkshires, Family Support, Foster Care, and Residential programs build memories free from uncertainty, scarcity, and loss. Secret Santa has always embodied the organization’s values and aspirations in ways that are difficult to capture, but ask anyone, and they will tell you, not only did they change the life of a child, they were changed in doing so.
“This year, more than ever, we need the community to be there with us as they have been so often, supporting the work we do and those we serve. Please consider sponsoring one of our very deserving children. Even a small contribution will go a long way in bringing them (and you!) some much needed holiday cheer.” said Dr. William Dávila, Executive Director/CEO of The Children’s Study Home.
Supporting the program can be done by receiving a child’s wish list for $75, holding a Toy Drive at a business or organization, or by simply making a donation to The Children’s Study Home. To join the community in making dreams come true for children; dreams that are often elusive and difficult to ensure, please email Secretsanta@studyhome.org or contact 413-636-3085 and if possible, refer a friend so they can join the community of givers.
