This is the 22nd year US Martial Arts Academy, Ltd has donated gifts for the children of Villa Maria, now called St. Vincent’s Villa. The students and families of our school have generously helped us with this wonderful holiday tradition.
The children of St. Vincent’s Villa come to the facility in various ways. They may be residents of the Villa, in the public school systems or special education schools, in foster care, or may live in private homes. They are children with emotional challenges who need extra support and special care to grow and reach their potential.
Each year, St. Vincent’s Villa provides gifts to make each child’s holiday special. Students and families of our school provide gifts of new toys and other new items to help brighten the holidays.
There are gift tags at the school with a holiday gift wish for each child. Popular items this year are footballs and basketballs, arts and craft supplies/kits, and board and card games, such as Sorry, Trouble, and Uno cards. Please pick out a gift card to fulfill a child’s holiday wish. Leave the smaller part of the card in the container to indicate that the card was selected.
If the indicated gift or wish costs less than $20, please add to the gift. Items such as socks, craft items, hair items (for girls), trading cards, matchbox cars, games such as Sorry, Connect Four, Battleship,playing cards, or winter gloves are always welcome.
Please bring in the new, unwrapped gifts by Saturday, December 6, 2014.
Thank you very much for your continued support of this program.
