Maryhurst Holds Annual Holiday Gift Drive to Fulfill Wish Lists Plus, Delicious Gourmet Cookies!
Louisville, KY – December 1, 2016 –Maryhurst is kicking off their annual Holiday Gift Drive and is asking the Louisville community to help brighten a Maryhurst child’s holiday this season. Now through Monday, December 12 Maryhurst is accepting donations to help fulfill residents’ wish lists, including gift cards from area retailers. In addition, Maryhurst is selling gourmet cookies prepared by Desserts by Helen with proceeds helping to support the programs at Maryhurst year round.
“Many of our children have never experienced the joy of the holidays before coming to Maryhurst,” says Judy Lambeth, CEO of Maryhurst. “Help us grant wishes to our children this holiday season, so that each of them has something to celebrate, including a chance at hope and healing.”
The Maryhurst Holiday Gift Drive is a great philanthropic opportunity for families, individuals, churches, organizations and businesses to brighten the holidays for Maryhurst residents. There are several ways to help:
- Help Fulfill a Child’s Wish List: Each year, Maryhurst children create a holiday wish list that contains six gifts of their choice. Donors can choose to complete a child’s wish list (approximately $150 total).
- Purchase Gift Cards: help Maryhurst fulfill the wish lists by purchasing gift cards from local stores such as Target, Old Navy, Wal-Mart, Meijer and Kohl’s.
- Purchase Gourmet Cookies: purchase delicious gourmet cookies prepared by Desserts by Helen. Each gift tin contains three of Sister Grace’s favorite recipes that she loved to bake and share with others. Each tin contains a dozen gourmet cookies each (chocolate-dipped chocolate chip, buttery raspberry thumbprint, and oatmeal raisin). The cost is $25 per cookie tin, plus shipping.
