November 26, 2014

 treeRemember the feeling you had as a child, sitting around the tree, excitedly opening gifts, creating memories and sharing the joy of the season? You can help bring that magic and cheer to a family this year by being a Christmas sponsor!

DVS’ Christmas sponsorship program provides an opportunity for caring individuals, families, businesses and community groups to personally make a difference for a struggling family during the holidays. Last year the generous Tri-Cities community was able to help us sponsor 32 families — this year our goal is 40 families! Help us put the magic into Christmas by being a sponsor — learn more here.
