Homeport’s Winter Wishes program wrapped up another successful year in 2012. A record 660 children adopted for the holiday season – almost double the amount of kids that were adopted last year! Our dedicated staff, volunteers, and many partners came together to purchase gifts for each and every child. Alliance Data, Starbucks, and EMH&T were major supporters this year; between the three organizations, they adopted almost 60% of the children. Our Winter Wishes program is unique in that it requires the parents to volunteer in order to receive holiday gifts for their children. This year, parents logged almost 400 service hours in their respective community. The 2012 Winter Wishes program was all around a huge success, and we want to thank everyone who helped this year!
