Sugar Plum Fairies returned in 2021 and the team started in early September to provide a magical Christmas for 100 West Valley children.
The past two years have been a challenge. HOT worked with local school districts and other organizations to identify the families who needed our help the most. HOT ensured both children and their families had a magical Christmas.
For 2021, HOT added an online toy drive. Since toys do not qualify as QCO purchases, volunteers purchased all the requested toys in two and a half days.
Gift presentation and meeting Santa and Mrs. Clause was extra special also this year. Gina Schmitz from Eliseo C. Felix Elementary school provided a classroom that our volunteers decorated for the kids.
Kids received clothes, shoes, pajamas and a special dress up Christmas outfit. In addition, they received a toy and a stockings with hygiene essentials. Eaching family received a Christmas Even Gift Basket.
