2013 City Light Christmas Card Event

We were thrilled to partner again with City Light Women and Children’s Shelter – After School Program and send really unique and meaningful cards.  We were overwhelmed with their enthusiasm to participate, and the uniqueness of each card.  Kids from the ages of 3 -16 participated and seemed to enjoy letting their creativity take over.  Cookies, warm mittens, new coloring supplies, and prizes made the event fun for the kids.  Although all the kids “won” in this situation by our donation, we selected the following card as the winner of our coloring contest:


For each reproduction of the card, we donated $1 directly to the City Light Women and Children’s shelter to benefit this after school program.

If you aren’t familiar with this organization already, we encourage you to visit their website, schedule a tour, or just call them on the phone to learn about their services.  It will amaze you to learn the amount of love that is poured out from the City Light Women’s shelter staff and volunteers to the many homeless women and children in the Treasure Valley.  It is difficult to hear the stories of the women and children that the facility serves each year.  However, you leave with an understanding that the women will be served and ministered to in a loving and safe environment and have the best chance at turning their situation around in a positive environment.
