TFF Hope for the Holidays 2016
The Tesori Family Foundation is thrilled to support the families through the Emergency Services Coalition of St. Johns County (ESHC) again this holiday season. These children and their families are struggling with homelessness and are working together with the great folks at ESHC to get back on their feet. We'd like to ensure they have a joyous holiday as they endure this trying season in their lives and you can help!
ABOUT ESHC: ESHC offers transitional housing for these families who are wanting to help themselves. Participant parent(s) must seek job training, employment, continuing education, assessment counseling and permanent housing. Residents stay anywhere from 3-24 months while working to independently provide for their family.
Each adopted family provides a "wish list" which we take with us to Kohl's on December 10 (our shopping day!). We stay within the budget set by ESHC ($100 per child), shopping for each child, individually wrapping each gift and secretly delivering to ESHC where the gifts will be left for each child to open on Christmas morning. And we don't forget the adults... we take care of the parent(s) as well!
Details for our shopping day are listed below. Can't join us? There are other ways you can help! You can donate and we'll do the shopping or you can drop off wrapping paper and tape for us to wrap if that suits you! Have Kohl's cash? You can donate it to the cause. There are lots of ways you can participate...
