This year, our donors helped us do something that we had only dreamed about the past few years. After nearly a decade of serving the West Charlotte community, we had prayed that the Lord would provide opportunities to share the blessing with a new community in Charlotte. In His faithfulness, the Lord opened up the door to serving a new partner church in the Druid Hills community of North Charlotte this year. It was there that we had the privilege of including over 30 new children and their families into our 2017 Adopt a Child for Christmas program. That brought our program up to 120 kids this year, which was a stretch goal for us and was made possible only by the grace of God and our generous donors!
So thank you to those of you who helped love on these at-risk kids and their families this year. If you didn't get a chance to attend either of our Christmas parties where the gifts were delivered, you can still check out pictures from the event at https://newleaffound.smugmug.com/Adopt-a-Child-for-Christmas-2017/ or on our Facebook page.
