For us this year as a community outreach, we have not had the funds to provide toys for the children in need in our community of Orange and the County of Orange. We have prayed for the necessities however, knowing that this year has seen an increase in the amount of food needed by families. There once again, has the community of Orange stepped up to support those in need of food such as St. Josephs Hospital, Project Dignity and many wonderful men and women of this community. We will have Christmas dinners this year for those who are in need.
You Are Special hands out toys to low income families every Christmas. As you are aware, many food banks and community outreach programs are struggling but we believe the Lord is faithful. If you have any toys or gift cards you would like to donate please contact us.We are in the Orange County CA area. 3526 E. Chapman Ave. Orange, CA 92869.
Michelle Hensley and the YAS team!
