Woodland Holiday Market delivers holiday spirit to families in need

Post

On December 12, United Way hosted a holiday market at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Woodland for local families in need. Parents were invited to shop the market for free and select from donated gifts for their children. 

Due to the generosity of more than 25 local donors, a team of 20 United Way volunteers helped share over 300 holiday presents to 70 local kids.

“We talk a lot about the holidays being merry and bright, but for too many families in our community, it’s hard to feel merry when your future is uncertain and your kids don’t even have a warm coat to get through the winter,” said Stephanie Bray, president and CEO, United Way California Capital Region. “All children deserve a bright future, and that’s why our Square One Project works to ensure all kids in our community have the support they need year-round so they can focus on school and succeed in life.”
