The holiday season is finally here! Christmas carols can be heard in every retail store, neighborhoods are filled with festive, twinkling lights and there’s a little chill in the air.

During this time of year, life tends to go by in the blink of an eye. We try to cram our days full of activities like holiday shopping, baking and spending time with family and friends. Although this is the ultimate season of giving, we often get so wrapped up in getting gifts for loved ones, that we forget about those who need gifts the most.

This is one of the reasons we’re donating to the regional charity, Great Circle this year. The organization offers a variety of services such as counseling, crisis and trauma support, and aid with behavioral issues, to help struggling families and children across Missouri. The Winter Wishes Holiday Drive will help those children receive the care and support they need all year ‘round. 

The holiday season seems to bring out the generosity in all of us. There’s something magical about watching a child’s eyes light up with joy on Christmas morning. It’s a feeling that warms the heart to the very core. That’s why we are giving back to Great Circle, to give hope and joy to these children in difficult situations – the children in our local community.

During the Winter Wishes Holiday Drive, we will be matching monetary donations up to $5,000. Join us to give back and give hope this holiday season.
