Supported by generous sponsors known as Holiday Angels, the programs helped cover many high priority needs and special wishes of Nursery families who are experiencing financial hardship. Typical donations included toys, diapers, housing and utility assistance, transportation assistance, household needs, food and formula, and shoes and clothing.
