(Date to be announced).

     Think snow, sleigh bells, sparkling lights and Christmas music. Think hot chocolate, apple cider, pretty ribbons, toys and lots of goodies. Does this start to feel like the Christmas you and your family are planning? We hope so.

     Unfortunately, this is not the image many of the Parker Task Force clients see when they consider the upcoming holiday season. For many of them, this season means the additional stress cold weather puts on already tight budgets. It means that the dreams and expectations that many of us take for granted are still just beyond their reach. Worse, it means that they have to say to their children, “Santa won’t be able to visit our house this year.”

     While Douglas County is thought of as affluent, nearly 20% of its residents struggle to meet even the basic needs of food and shelter. Parker Task Force now helps hundreds of families stay in their homes with working utilities and enough food to feed everyone in their household. The volunteers at PTF pour a tremendous amount of time and love into this work. We all know that it is not enough. We rely on the wonderful citizens in our community to help us out with donations of food and money and you do! The incredible generosity and giving spirit is a constant source of joy for all of us.
