I would like to personally thank all KV Connectors for your help in making the greatest Christmas ever for our family we adopted from the domestic violence shelter. This year by far is the best year ever for support from you all. Everyone dove in to help out where they could and we probably purchased items totaling $800 to $1000. I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization and you should be too. I would like to share the response we received from our grandmother who received the items: First of all we had so much that it would not fit in her car and the lady form the DV program had to follow her in her car to bring everything we got for them. The grandmother was so overwhelmed with joy and happiness that it took close to 20 minutes to get her calmed down before she could even drive. She had less than $1.00 after she paid her bills for the month and could not believe a group our size could do so much. She has never asked for help before and was hesitant to do so this year. WE made the best Christmas wish possible for this family that was already struggling so much. We often take for granted how much we all have and that we can afford to help others who are in need so I wanted to share with everyone how much of a difference we made in this family lives. We will be receiving a letter from the grandmother and I will post that when it comes in. Thank you to all and Happy Holidays!!! Sincerest Thanks, Nikki Desjardins Co-Chair
