Hundreds of community members, from individuals to corporations, participated in the success of the program by donating toys, food, funds, or volunteering their time. In response to results of the program, HSP’s Executive Director Kristin Maxwell said, “The number of children we served this year does show that there are still many families in need of help in our community.
