UPDATE: Dec. 17 & 29 are now filled. Thank you!! We are still in need of those New Year dates if you are able to help provide for our guest families! ------------------------------------------------------- Give families the gift of not having to worry! We still need dinners for Dec. 17 & 29 + Jan. 1-3! When you provide a meal, families don't have to stress about cooking or finding money for groceries when their child is sick. If your group can't make it to the House, catering or ordering pizza is a nice option too. Thank you! Sign up at #keepingfamiliesclose
