Newport homeless and warming shelter provider Traci Flowers has taken a suggestion to heart, submitted by a ten year old girl so that Christmas doesn’t pass by those who need a little lift this month.
Flowers reports that “We have a 10 year old girl’s wish for Christmas to make sure all the homeless children in our community get Christmas presents!
The way it works is they contact Grace Wins Homeless program via phone email or messenger. We give them the Christmas wishes of a homeless Community member. They return the gifts to us – we wrap them and have a Christmas party where the first gifts will be distributed. We will give out the gifts and have a Christmas dinner and goodies with the homeless in our community.
