Christmas Donation: In year’s past we have asked that instead of giving a teacher gift, that a small monetary donation be given instea, we aer asking for that this year too. In previous years, we have sent donations to a priest friend of ours in Berma to help set up a computer lab; another priest friend in Panama doing missionary work, USO packages to soldiers overseas, and last year we adopted a family that was hit very hard by Hurricane Sandy. This yearone of our former dancers contacted us about the organization she is working for – Bringing Hope Home. Bringing Hope Home is a non profit organization that emotionally and financially supports familes battling cancer inthe Greater Philadelphia Area. The organization was started by Paul Insenberg in honor of his late wife Nicole. For more information visit their website www.bringinghopehome.org. We would liek to Adopt-A-Family form this organization this year. Our donation will helppay their gas and electric bills or fillup their oil tank so that they can heat their home this winter. If you would like to make a donation that would be great. Please put your donation in a sealed envelope marked Christmas Donation. This is totally voluntary, not mandatory. Thank you in advance.
