Thanksgiving is a great time to get together with family and give thanks for the many blessings we all too often take for granted. It is easy to forget that there are some children who do not have the luxury of being able to spend the holidays with their families. That is the case with the majority of the children at the Wright County Children’s Home.
This Thanksgiving our children were treated to a huge feast and a family-like environment. Several of our staff members and volunteers came by to enjoy the evening meal and we all sat down together and gave thanks for the wonderful things in our lives – even if life isn’t exactly perfect at the moment.
One of the many things that all of us here at the Wright County Children’s Home are thankful for is the many people in our community who have supported this worthy endeavor throughout the years. You give us the opportunity to invest our lives into these unfortunate children and help make their lives as normal as possible while they wait for a resolution to their families current situation. Without you, WCCH doesn’t exist.
We as a local community should be very proud of our beautiful children’s home. It is truly one of the nicest facilities of its kind anywhere. We invite you to come by during normal business hours (while school is in session preferably) and take a tour! See for yourself how much good can be accomplished when a big-hearted community bands together for a common cause!
