How This Works
In early October, we work closely with social workers and local NWA school districts to connect 25 qualifying children and their families with our organization. These families qualify through their enrollment in the Families in Transition program which serves families within the state of Arkansas who are between stable housing situations. We choose the venue and our amazing volunteer staff is notified of their roles and responsibilities.
Each invited child is able to bring two parents or caring adults as well as their siblings. In our first year, we anticipated 100 individuals and we have seen this number grow each year. While our main focus is building a magical experience, we recognize the opportunity to send every participant home with a few items from their Christmas Eve celebration. To achieve this, our volunteer staff work with each individual child to learn of their wants and needs for the holiday season.
