One of the wonderful things about being a Little Sister is to witness how kind and generous people are. We see that with our many donors every day, but one young boy really stood out this year.
It all started on Christmas of 2021, when 6-year-old Michael wrote a letter to Santa Claus and asked for 500 cans of green beans. He really loves green beans! He got his wish, and amazingly he shared his Christmas gift with us! See his story here. It was so sweet to see his face light up when he came to deliver the beans – he was so happy to share with us!
This year before making out his Christmas wish list, Michael called Sr. Agnes to ask if our Residents could use anything. He wanted to share with us again. She told him Kleenex are always needed and appreciated by our Residents, especially during cold and flu season.
Well, once again, Santa delivered! Shortly after Christmas, Michael and his parents showed up with mountains of Kleenex. 522 boxes to be exact! Exactly what we needed! It touched our hearts to see this sweet family again, and to share in the true spirit of Christmas. All winter long, whenever a Resident takes a Kleenex out of their pocket, they will think of a generous boy who truly knows it’s better to give than to receive.
