AIM's Christmas Program provides our current clients with Christmas for children of each family under the age of 18. This is possible because of our generous donors and volunteers who go above and beyond during the holiday season to give these children the Christmas of their dreams.
On the first Thursday, December 3rd, our Christmas program in 1996 took the spotlight. It was a Winter Newsletter that described the program from that year to assist 339 children and adults due to the support of our Anderson Community.
On December 10th, the week highlighted another AIM newsletter, but this time from 1992. On the last line of the newsletter was a sweet statement, "the true joy of Christmas is in the giving." It is our hope at AIM that everyone found this to be true this past Christmas amidst the struggle, and we will all continue to in the future.
December 17th featured a newspaper article titled "Christmas reminds us to help others year-round." This article challenges us to build real relationships, especially outside the holiday season.
Thursday, December 24th was the final post for throwbacks in December and featured a letter from our Executive Director, Kristi King-Brock during the holiday season. In the letter, she tells the touching story of a 10 year old girl who sponsored a family for AIM's Christmas Program.
