Silver Springs Elementary and Preschool are Connections' Christmas Elves!

December 03, 2014

Connections likes to highlight that we support our families for the long-term -- lifelong support or for as long as the family wants us in their lives. Well, we're not the only one in for the long haul! This year we celebrate 17 years of Christmas hampers put together by Silver Springs Elementary. And that involvement has grown to include the Silver Springs Preschool.

Families supported by Connections all live in poverty and they work hard, every day, to maintain a stable home and be the best parents they can be. For many, Christmas is a time that can be extra hard. It makes an immeasurable difference to have the care and efforts of Silver Springs Elementary families and staff provide many of our families with a Christmas hamper.

Silver Springs Elementary students get to enjoy their Christmas holiday knowing that they've helped share the joy of Christmas and made a real difference for families in need. We thank them for their continued generosity.
