Visions Staff Raises Over $2,500 to Help Students and Families

This holiday season was made even more merry by our incredibly successful Adopt-a-Student campaign. This annual campaign aims to raise money for our students and families facing hardships and to provide them with some holiday cheer.

This year we had a goal of raising $2,500 to support families in our community. Visions staff heard the call and ended up raising a total of $2,603, exceeding our goal by over $100! 

Gift requests this year were minor and many families requested small toys, basic necessities like food and diapers, and items of clothing. Many students on our list this year were in-between homes, escaping troubled living situations, or simply trying to make ends meet in difficult circumstances. The donations our staff generously provided went a long way towards making December a little brighter.

“Volunteering to wrap presents for our students brings joy not just to them, but also to the volunteer. There’s something special about spreading holiday cheer through the simple act of wrapping presents and I am proud to join my colleagues in doing so,” says Jessica Johnson, Speech Therapist.

“I love working with my colleagues in support of our students,” says Victoria Soria, Curriculum Coordinator for the Home School Academy. “It is especially heartwarming to wrap gifts so thoughtfully chosen for students during the winter season. I love that we do this every year!”

From donations to wrapping to delivery, thank you to our staff for coming together to give the gift of joy to our students and families. We wish you all a happy holiday season!
