As we settle in to a new year, Center for Human Services (CHS) – Oakdale Family Resource and Counseling Center would like to thank all those that helped make the 2014 holiday season bright for so many in our community. (CHS) – Oakdale Family Resource and Counseling Center is especially thankful to all of our donors. We’d like to acknowledge Oakdale High School’s Leadership group for their donation of coats, canned foods and toys. We are so grateful for the partnership that has been created over the years. (CHS) – Oakdale Family Resource and Counseling Center also received toy donations from Fair Oaks Elementary from their Shoe Box Project, Ball Corporation, coats from C-21 M&M Oakdale and Central Valley Association of Realtors, as well as several private donors. Also, we’d like to thank the Red Robin in Riverbank for adopting two of our families for the Christmas Holiday. You did a great job.
Our Christmas Angel Giving Tree was wildly successful this year. We owe many thanks to the businesses who put up Angel Trees. A special thank you to Little Luvbugz, St. Mary’s Church, Bank of the West, Steves Chevrolet, Koru Power Yoga Studio, Learning Tree Preschool, House of Tykes, 507 Day Spa & Salon, Pointe of Dance Studio, The Oakdale Leader, Oakdale High School and Spirit of Oakdale. These businesses make this project possible. We are so grateful for their partnership and passion. We couldn’t have done the project without the wonderful help of several amazing volunteers; Michelle and Lily Kendig, Dawn Allen, Shaelyn Sexton, and Kym Cassaretto and her amazing children Rylin, Tate and Hayden Cassaretto. They were our link to the businesses this year. It is individuals like them, and all the community members who spent their time and money to make a child’s Christmas a little brighter, that make this community so amazing! Without you this project would not have been possible. Nearly 400 children had a special Christmas thanks to the time and generosity of those we have listed. Thank you for helping us to change lives and build futures in the Oakdale Community.
