---- — To the editor:
It’s hard to believe that nearly seven years ago, we gathered around our kitchen table to discuss the specific needs of this region’s foster kids —and the steps to be taken by which to respond to those needs.
Back then, it was only a dream, but today, through concerted efforts by Foster Kids of the Merrimack Valley, our collective dream has become a remarkable reality — far beyond what any of us could have envisioned, when we began.
This holiday season once again affords us the opportunity to say “Many thanks to each one of you” for being such generous and caring community supporters. In your own individual and beautiful way, you have profoundly contributed to our growth and development, which has made a life-changing difference for every one of these very deserving children.
We are so grateful for our board’s ongoing support and commitment toward advancing this vital cause. We respectfully urge them and all community supporters to take pride in knowing that each and every one of you who has been a Santa’s Helper, wrapped gifts, made monetary donations or offered support of any kind has made a significant difference in our kids’ lives.
Foster Kids of the Merrimack Valley will continue to thrive and to serve its purpose, through the generosity of so many.
May God abundantly bless you and your loved ones during this very special season and throughout the coming New Year.
With warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas,
Larry and Eileen Giordano
