Thank you Edmonton!
Your outpouring of support for the forgotten teens of our city resulted in Adopt-A-Teen reaching its 2016 goal of providing every Edmonton teenager living in lower-income families with at least one gift this past Christmas, a $50 Adopt-A-Teen gift card for use at Walmart department stores.
You have no idea of the joy and happiness you have brought to those families. The teens were able to buy a little something for themselves, presents for their families, and, in many cases, gave the gift card back to their family so all could enjoy Christmas.
A final report on the 2016 Adopt-A-Teen campaign will be forthcoming in this blog once all the accounting is complete.
Until then, just a great big THANK YOU on behalf of all the teens living in families registered with the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton.
Chair, 2016 Adopt-A-Teen Christmas Campaign
