"Every December something magical happens in Fresno…as a community, we help the homeless children and families in our community celebrate the holidays. For many of these families this is the only means to celebrate the season and create special holiday memories together as a family." www.handsoncentralcal.org
During the month of December Genesis Master of Events had the privilege to donate the table centerpieces to Hope for the Holidays. The event took place on Sunday, December 19th at the Ernie Valdez Exhibit Hall in downtown Fresno and about 1,5000 attended. We created, delivered, and set up all the centerpieces for the event.
Not only did we donate centerpieces, but we volunteered with any additional assistance they needed, like wrapping presents or serving food. I personally worked at the "cookie station". There were probably 15-20 other volunteers at my station. The children would come up, pick what color frosting they wanted, and then put sprinkles on top. It was so rewarding to see the kids faces light up when they got to make their own cookies!
