It is disheartening to know that some children are wondering if they will get to experience the joy of opening gifts on Christmas morning with their families. In an effort to make sure every child feels the magic of Christmas, Presbyterian Village North residents came together to make this holiday season a truly meaningful one. They spent the earlier part of December purchasing Christmas gifts online and in stores for children in need who attend their neighborhood school. Having developed a close relationship with Stults Elementary School, PVN and the school collaborate on many programs and intergenerational activities all year long. At the end of the year, the residents provide one final gesture of love and compassion by giving Christmas gifts to students in need. The school sets up an Angel Tree and brings it over to PVN. Residents then pick out children and lovingly purchase items that are on the children’s wish lists. The goal is to not only make Christmas extra special for the children, it is also to alleviate the parents’ stress so they do not have to fret about providing these things in addition to basic necessities. It’s that time of year when many people look for ways to give back to those who are less fortunate and in need, and there’s nothing cuter than seniors giving back to children.
