SNH Christmas Party - December 2014

2014 ended with a day of fun and fellowship for the children and families of SNH. December 23rd was a day filled with fun, food, speeches, more food and more speeches.
SNH staff welcomed the families and thanked them for coming to the 2nd annual Christmas party. They spoke of the mission of SNH and encouraged families to see the potential in their children and to work together to enable them to be all they are capable of being.
SNH parents spoke about what SNH has meant to them and their children and several of the children also shared. Grace struggled to overcome stage fright as she sang for the crowd.
Harriet gave a very powerful speech in which she expressed gratitude to her sponsors for all they’ve done for her, beseeched parents to believe in and fight for their children, and encouraged the children to believe in themselves, to dream big and never give up hope.
SNH staff looked smart in their new team shirts and the children stood out in their bright pink SNH kids wear!
A party wouldn’t be a party without gifts and this event was no exception. Each of the children received a card and got to choose from a goodie bag filled will all sorts of trinkets and prizes (balls, bracelets, teeny beanie babies…). The parents and staff received bars of soap.
A highlight of the day was the delicious meal, cold sodas and of course the Christmas cake.
A heartfelt thanks to those who made the party possible. A great time was had by all and everyone is already looking ahead to Christmas 2015.
