From high school students volunteering to wrap presents night after night, to companies finding creative ways to mobilize their remote workforces, to an anonymous donor stopping by Orchard Place the day before Thanksgiving to cover gifts for 100 kids, our hearts are full of gratitude.
"My grandson and granddaughter really enjoy the Christmas gifts they get through Orchard Place. It helps lighten their spirits and gives them something more to look forward to. It also gives them the feeling that someone else cares." – Family served by PACE
“This is so heartwarming; amid the challenges of 2020, that so many reached out to help the children and families we care for enjoy this special time of year,” Orchard Place CEO Anne Starr
