MHM Children's Home Christmas
December 23, 2009
As in years past, Eastern helped to provide Christmas gifts for the children at the Miracle Hill Ministries Children's Home. This year was a bit different, however, in that we partnered directly with Lenora Cuddy, MHM Volunteer, and Enginneered Systems to provide Christmas for all the children currently in the home.
Throughout the year, Lenora collects donations to be used to purchase and wrap all sorts of gifts based on wish lists made up by the children. Although donations for this year were down over 60 percent from past years, primarily due to the economy, and with the Children's Home nearly filled to capacity, Eastern Associates came along side Lenora, to help provide Christmas for 36 children ranging in ages of 4-18. On December 22nd, Belinda Ellenburg, Accounts Payable/Systems Manager, and her husband, Keith, took on the roles of Mr. and Mrs. Claus, as they presented the children their Christmas gifts. Belinda said, "The excitement and the smiling faces of the children was beyond words!"
Merry Christmas from all of us here at Eastern!
