Every year Waterbury Youth Services hosts a festive Holiday party for our youth in LAL and 4H. A warmness filled the room as the youth came in from the cold weather to be greeted by their facilitators with a hot cocoa station and a seasonal movie playing. This year our youth donned their Holiday jammies, watched a movie, warmed up with hot coco and delicious food, and received gifts that the community came together to provide. The gifts ranged from teddy bears, books, sports equipment to gift cards, blankets, and more. The agency was filled with overwhelming joy, infectious laughter, and most of all, heartfelt love. One youth was so overcome with happiness when they realized their gift and said, "This is what I really wanted!". What a memorable way to close out the year!
A tremendous Thank You to the sponsors that opened their hearts and spread the joy that filled the room. YOU helped brighten the holidays and we couldn't be more grateful.
