2023 christmas 3 webSubmitted by Judy Haken, Activity Director

Everyone at Casa Del Valley knows Christmas is in the air when the Giving Tree goes up in the front office. Decorated with tags inscribed with names, gender and gift information, residents can choose a tag (or two) from the tree. They then purchase a gift and return the wrapped gift to be placed under the Giving Tree for distribution just before Christmas.

This is Casa del Valle’s second year of providing Christmas gifts to those in need through the Giving Tree. Last year, the gifts were provided for 34 children and widows from a local Hispanic church, Iglesia Gethsemani.

2023 christmas 2 webInterest in participating was greater than the number of tags last year, so this year, children at the women’s shelter, Mujeres Unidas, were added as well as several residents without families at the local nursing home, The Heights of Alamo.

Casa del Valle will be sharing the Christmas spirit with a total of 54 gifts that will be distributed to these three locations just in time for Christmas.
