The holiday season of 2009 was something FresnoMommies (CA) was very happy about. Their Charitable Events Manager, Brandi, coordinated a fantastic project where FresnoMommies adopted a family for the holiday season.
As a result, they were able to help a family with 5 children have a happier holiday. The 12 year old received a chess game, a scooter, a pair of pants, two shirts and a helmet. The 11 year old boy received a scooter, two hand held games, a pair of pants, a shirt and a helmet. The 9 year old girl received a scooter, handheld CD player, a Demi Lovato CD, a pair of pants, 3 shirts and a helmet. The 6 year old boy received a bike, a G.I. Joe laptop, a pair of pants, shirt, jacket and a helmet. The 3 year old girl received a Barbie tricycle, a Barbie prince and princess doll and a lot of clothes. The mother also received a few gifts.
They didn’t do it alone, however. FresnoMommies held a charity Bunco event with members and friends that helped pay for the clothes and toys. They raised over $100 and prizes were given out. The prizes included free hair services!
The Denny’s Shaw location in Clovis, CA hosted the charity Bunco. In addition to hosting the charity Bunco event, Denny’s also donated clothes and toys to the kids.
It was a wonderful project that fit the spirit of the holiday season.FresnoMommies would like to thank all their members, supporters and Denny’s for their generosity and support. It could not have been done without you, and the family will never forget it!
