As we've done the last three holiday seasons, the Parker Lee Foundation is accepting donations to raise funds for Christmas gifts for the kids with Directions for Youth & Families. Below is Parker's annual message to kick off the fundraising.
Let Andy Williams' voice ring in those ears because it truly is the most wonderful time of the year! Go ahead sing it out loud while you're pumping gas, checking out at Costco, or folding socks -- IT'S THE MOST -- WONDERFUL TIME -- OF THE YEAR!
A time that reminds us of the warmth and love that surrounds us during Christmas and Holiday Season. Yes, the season of giving is officially upon us and we implore you to join the Parker Lee Foundation in making this holiday season truly special for those less fortunate. While many of us are blessed with the comforts of a warm home, delicious meals, and the joy of sharing gifts with our loved ones, there are countless families in our community who are struggling to make ends meet.
Let's come together as a community and extend a hand of compassion to those in need. We aim to provide an Amazon Gift Card and a nice warm blanket to 140 children across Central Ohio. These gifts will be distributed through our charitable partnership with Directions for Youth & Families.
Again this year, with each $10 donated, you will receive an entry into our Holiday Spirits Raffle, in which you could potentially win a 1/2 barrel of "spirits" just in time for your holiday celebrations.
Together, we can make the world a warmer, brighter, and more compassionate place for all and in return you'll get a great big beautiful smile -- just like ol' Andy Williams.
Regardless, we hope this note finds you and your families well, and we wish you a joyful and happy holiday season.
