This weekend, SMU had the opportunity to celebrate the season at our 5th Annual Christmas party! It was wonderful to see more than 50 children and their moms enjoy a night of fellowship & fun. The evening wouldn't have been possible without the contributions from many amazing people and businesses within our community.
We are grateful for:
UNICOM Global, Lighthouse Chiropractic, and Momentum Chiropractic and Rehab for being our Angel Tree locations and helping us get all the children sponsored. Thank you to the wonderful people in our community who purchased gifts from the wish lists to make Christmas for these children more special!
Angelita Grant for securing and donating the venue for the party and making the beautiful center pieces. It was perfect and exactly what we needed!
Shelah aka Mookie Mook with Weezy's Kitchen, LLC, who made a delicious "Christmas dinner" spread for the party. This lady is an SMU member herself and our Children's Ministry Director. She can do it all! Shelah made this evening extra special for the kids of SMU in many ways.
So Phia for face painting non-stop for hours! That was such a treat to the kiddos who kept going back for more.
Our Fundraising Coordinator, Renee, who is constantly working in the community to bring awareness about SMU, supporting members in need however she can, and who secured our wonderful photographer for the party.
Christine Bond Photography for donating her time and setting up a beautiful space for family pictures and for capturing pictures of kids with Santa (who we're thankful found time in his busy schedule to come by!)
Our always supportive families and a couple SMU members who helped with set up and clean up!
We are looking forward to 2019, our monthly meetings, many special outreach events, and the families we'll get to serve in the new year.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to our friends, families, members, and supporters. God bless you and yours!
