And, all of those who donated gifts
  
Christmas has been the season of spreading good cheer, of spending time with family and friends, of sharing, caring and giving.    Of baking cookies, wrapping gifts, decorating the tree and putting up lights, Christmas carols, writing letters to Santa and building snowman with the kids.  

Every year, as the holidays approach, families gather together to celebrate with festive decorations, exchange of gifts, and spreading good cheer.  What’s very easy to forget not just during these times of feasting and celebrating but everyday of the year  is that there are so many families right in our communities that are struggling and can't afford Christmas gifts.   Baking cookies and decorating the tree just aren't in the picture for them.   

  Each year, churches, organizations and social service agencies host their holiday toy drives to help children of families in need.   And, each year a great deal of time and effort is spent collecting thousands of toys for less fortunate families across the Treasure Valley – to bring smiles and a little holiday cheer to as many children as donations will allow.  In 2015 there were 15484 children living in poverty in Canyon County, many will not receive a single gift during the holiday season. Youth 13-18yrs are the ones most likely to be overlooked and forgotten this time of year.    The Community Builders 2015 Hope for the Holidays, “A Time for Teens” changed that, being a first for Canyon County.     
 
Once again, we ask that you add a teen to your shopping list for The Community Builders 2016 Hope for the Holidays “A Time for Teens”.  It is only with the generosity of people like you, that together we can make 2016 “A Time for Teens” an even greater success than the last.
