The weather was snowy, cold and miserable on Saturday, December 12th, but many hearts were warmed by the Spirit of Giving event held that morning. A total of 525 registered families, including more than 1,500 kids, received presents and food to help with their holiday festivities.
The event could not have happened without the participation of many. The Spirit of Giving Committee wishes to recognize the following individuals and organizations for volunteering and/or committing financial resources or other services:
• The Mielcarek Family Foundation.
• Harms Insurance Group.
• RPM Property Service – needed snow plowing early that morning!
• List Trucking.
• The stocking crew from the Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry.
• Various Sun Prairie churches that filled Giving Tree wishes.
• The many individuals who adopted families for presents and contributed for food purchases.
• The volunteers who sorted and distributed presents.
• The food distribution volunteers.
• The Sun Prairie Police Department.
• Sun Prairie Area School District Social Workers.
Thank You Sun Prairie for showing your Spirit of Giving, a partnering agency of Sunshine Place.
Together we made the holidays of so many families so much brighter.
