December has been a short, but busy month. We are grateful! Thank you to all who gave to our 2017 Giving Day & Annual Appeal (ending Dec. 31st) ; as well as to those who attended the December Benefit Car Show at Habersham. The children and several parents were also invited to attend a Christmas musical program and dinner this past Friday at Wesley United Methodist Church of Beaufort (thank you Mr. Alick Lewis & friends). Blessings continue each year when George & Linda Jones share the Christmas spirit by donating turkey food baskets to all Thumbs Up families.
Let’s not forget the wonderful congregation at St. Peter’s Catholic Church of Beaufort who showered the children with bag loads of Christmas gifts from their Angel Tree to make the season brighter. We also have lots of love for the Callawassie tutors who donated the gift that never stops giving—BOOKS FOR EVERY CHILD! Thank you to the good folks at the new Lady’s Island Walmart that donated more than 600 individual school supplies to the Thumbs Up children on Saturday! We plan to share with CAPA friends and our students’ schools. It’s all good … and isn’t that why we are here?
Thumbs Up will be open on Dec. 18-19th, last day, but no tutors will be expected to attend.
Thank you and have a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
