Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow held its annual Client Holiday party on Thursday, December 13th, 2018.
FIT clients and their families enjoyed food, refreshments, and holiday music while participating in an array of holiday stations that were manned by the enthusiastic FIT staff. The children were able to go station to station coloring, crafting, and playing games. Each station was dedicated to a different holiday from Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and Los Reyes Magos (The Three Wise Men). While the children were being entertained at each station, parents were invited to go to Santa’s Secret Workshop. An adult only area, where parents selected gifts of their choice for their little ones. Parents wrapped their gifts and hid them to present their gift to to their children later on.
When everyone was least expecting, the jingle bells of Santa’s FIT elf filled the room, and out came Santa with his sack full of toys to give to all the good girls and boys. The children gathered around Santa in his chair waiting for their turn to greet him. Each child got a chance to take a picture with Santa and receive a gift from Santa himself!
A special thank you to Sandy & Steve Hardie who donate toys every year to Santa’s Workshop, the entire FIT staff for all their hard work making the event a success, and lastly, the FIT Board of Directors who adopt our FIT families and make monetary donations to the event every year. We could not hold this event every year without all of your help and we thank everyone for all you do not just during the holiday season, but year round!
