2020 Town of Hotchkiss Secret Santa Program

 

 

Dear Friends and Neighbors,                                                                                                                                 

I, Chad Lloyd, Sergeant with the Hotchkiss Marshal’s Department, along with the Town of Hotchkiss Employees, would like to invite you to join us in assisting less fortunate families within our community during the Holidays this year.

We at the Town of Hotchkiss have facilitated this program providing less fortunate families with gifts and support they may need.  All gifts are either donated or purchased with monetary donations received from organizations or individuals within our community, just like yourself.  Our staff makes every reasonable effort to conduct needed purchases locally.

All in the Spirit of this Holiday Season!

This program has been successful for the past 12 years in enriching the Christmas Spirit and supporting over 125 separate families within our community to date.  This program has been able to assist in providing needed food, clothing and necessities with some fun stuff as well as the emotional support in knowing someone cares and they are not alone in their struggles.

These families are chosen through information we receive from local organizations and citizens within our community.  Once the families have been chosen, we then provide gifts for each child within the home according to their particular needs.  The gifts are bagged by Town of Hotchkiss Employees.  They are then delivered by a personal visit from Santa Clause and volunteers from the North Fork Ambulance Association.

It has been an amazing experience helping those less fortunate. Just seeing the smiles, tears and pure joy in their faces, knowing someone cares and they are not alone in their struggles. Join us in helping our neighbors and our community this Holiday Season.

Please have any contributions in by December 11, 2020, so we may deliver on December 18, 2020.

In 2019, this program was able to assist 11 separate families to include 22 children whose lives were all touched and enriched by your support!!!

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely, Chad Lloyd, Deputy Marshal
