“During the 1st week of December 2016, a co-worker in our Coldwell Banker King Thompson Real Estate Office was informed that 30 children in Foster Care were no longer going to receive promised holiday gifts. Once the office got wind of this story, within two weeks we had all 30 children covered and we even came up with
enough gifts for 6 more children to have a happy Christmas.  We
either donated money, shopped for gifts, helped with wrapping, organizing or helped with the delivery.  It’s now become a tradition and this year the office was able to support 44 children in foster care most of them teenagers and two expectant teen moms.”


“I’m always amazed at the kindness my neighbor, Laura, shows to all. Neighbors, friends and strangers alike, her heart is always expanding. But one specific example where she showed to be a true Samaritan of giving was during the Christmas season. While Laura was caroling, she came across a woman who specifically asked for prayers for furniture – that she and her daughter had just escaped an abusive relationship and were starting fresh. After returning home Laura got on the Dublin moms in the know group as well as our neighborhood website and within a week had enough items to fully furnish her town house – plus a Christmas tree and gifts for her and her family! Laura and her husband packed up the items in a rented Uhaul and had everything to the woman’s home!”
