A Christmas miracle at the homeless shelter


To the editor:

To everyone who helped make a Christmas miracle come true for the children living at the Christian Homeless Shelter, we would like to thank you from the very bottom of our heart.

We can’t even begin to explain what everyone who purchased or help to purchase presents has done for our family.  For our children, ages 4 and 10, it wasn’t just about a toy or clothing under the tree, it was truly a Christmas miracle.

“Santa came to see us,” my 4-year-old said when she saw the presents under the tree. 

We are truly blessed to live in a community where people care about others so much.

Thanks again to all who contributed in any way.

By this time next year, we plan on being among the group of people who help to make Christmas at the homeless shelter as blessed and wonderful as you all have made it for us.

Thanks and may God bless,


Stacie, Mike, Michael, Briana,

The Gross family
