Bridge Families Celebrate Christmas Together

December 20, 2011

On Friday, December 9, Bridge Communities’ client families celebrated the holidays together at a joyful private party at The DuPage Children’s Museum in Naperville.  Approximately 230 people attended; the guest list included Bridge client families, staff, volunteers and special guests.

 

 The entire Museum was open for the celebration.  The heart of the party took place in the lower level, where a scrumptious feast from Barone’s of Glen Ellyn awaited.

Bridge Builders manned Santa’s Workshop, where children in Bridge’s Transitional Housing Program were able to shop (for free!) for Christmas gifts for their parents.

Santa Claus made a special appearance and surprised each child with the gift of reading – each child received a personally selected, gift-wrapped, age-appropriate book, courtesy of The Bookstore Glen Ellyn and Anderson’s Bookshop’s Book Angels program.  In addition, each family received gift cards from Naperville Covenant Church, an endeavor of its Windy City Project, a mission outreach program.

Steve Jurkovic Photography donated services to capture the joy of the festivities.

Homeless families endure so much stress in their everyday lives.  Bridge Communities is grateful to every contributor who helped make the Bridge Family Christmas Party a carefree evening of joyful celebration for Bridge families.  Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
