Community gives with toy drives and donations for holidays

The children treated by Kristi House and their families received an outpouring of support from the community during this holiday season. Support included toy drives, including one by Mayor Gimenez to benefit Kristi House, along with food collections and financial donations to support the specialists who provide the expert services to our clients. Support began with Thanksgiving where many brought donations of food to help make holiday meals.

The Annual Client Holiday Party took place Dec. 8, orchestrated by two board members (Thank you Tricia LeClair and Loretta Nido), and legions of volunteers and donors, it was a festive day to remember for our families impacted by child sexual abuse and exploitation. The Kristi House Board of Directors led by President Nelson Diaz extends its heartfelt “thank you” to these generous donors:
