Sugar Plum Fairies

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.

In our house Christmas is about giving, so contributing to the Sugar Plum Fairies was a perfect avenue for us with HOT as a wonderful conduit.

I was blown away by how many gifts came out of that van when the back opened up to the unsuspecting Grandmother waiting to receive just a few gifts for her grandchildren for Christmas.

Rebecca (Liaison)

We are so grateful for your recent donation to some of our school’s families. Your generosity brought much needed holiday joy to our students. Thank you for all that you do for the LESD community. 

Amanda (Liaison)

The abundance of clothes and gifts was much appreciated by the mother.  This mother would not have been able to provide this type of happiness to the children.

Monica (Liaison)

I could have never provided such a fabulous Christmas to these kids. I’ve never experienced generosity like this.

Lucinda (Recipient)

Myself and two other team members were lucky enough to meet the family and deliver their gifts in person. What a heart warming experience that was! The children were so polite and the parents so grateful.

Debbie (Volunteer)

The Sugar Plum Fairies floated in like angels to create sweet memories for kiddos who were overjoyed with all of the gifts and beautiful packages.

Shelley (Volunteer)

We would like to thank you for helping us this Christmas.  Your kindness truly means the world to us, and holds a very special place in our hearts.  We will never forget what you all did for our family!!!!!
