(Ashippun) For the 11th straight year, St. Olaf Church in the town of Ashippun is partnering with the community and organizations to provide a Christmas for the kids of local families in need. The program is called A Child’s Smile.
Last Christmas, the program provided Christmas for 1,224 children from 609 local families facing difficult times. The teachers and staff of 47 area schools selected the local families in need. The schools ensured that a parent or responsible caregiver in each of the families received a $50 Walmart gift card per child so they could afford to buy Christmas presents for their children.
Over $11-hundred-dollars’ worth of winter caps and mittens were also donated. They are dispensed by the schools as needed to the kids who lose them or come to school without warm clothes. Those interested can send their donations to Roger Johnson, St. Olaf Church, or the St. Olaf Church’s website by December 1st.
