What a #GivingTuesday!
Through the incredible support of our donors and surrounding community, the children, youth, and families we serve will get the direct support and care they need and deserve. We are so grateful for your #GivingTuesday donations, especially with the holiday season right around the corner.
We THANK YOU for participating in this generosity movement and for helping make impactful change in our community.
Your support helps the young people we serve build resilience and tells them that there are people who care for them, and want to see them thrive.
#GivingTuesday is Nov. 28, and the children, youth, and families we serve at Hull Services need your support to make this holiday season festive and bright.
When you think about the true meaning of the holiday season, what images come to mind? A gift to open on Christmas morning? Spending time with loved ones. Drinking hot cocoa with your family in front of the tree?
These images and memories are things many of us take for granted. But for the children, youth, and families in our care, memories like this are few and far between.
Often times, children and youth arrive at Hull with nothing but a small bag in tow with few possessions. Their lives really are sometimes just packed into one bag.
They may not have family to spend Christmas with and have already had to deal with so much in their short lives. It’s a hard reality and a reflection of the challenges they face every day.
For this GivingTuesday, we would like to share with you how the young people we serve desire the many gifts we so often take for granted, such as a close connection to someone that cares about them, or a gift to open on Christmas morning.
“It’s hard to see these kids show up to us with so little. And during the holiday season, you feel it that much more. Receiving donations during the holiday season goes such a long way for the kids. Knowing that someone cares for them during this time of year means everything to them.” – Hull Staff
Your donation today provides direct support and care to children in need, not only during the holiday season, but year ‘round with therapeutic opportunities such as art and music, while also providing a space that is warm, welcoming, and a place they can feel at home while receiving the critical care they need.
By donating this GivingTuesday, you are telling these kids they matter and that they can shine so much brighter than their past that has seen so much darkness.
The Hull Services team wishes you and yours a warm, loving, and festive holiday and thank you for helping to provide the very same for the kids that call Hull their home.
