to give back, there are many volunteer opportunities for groups, families and individuals available at the Hubbard House. During the holiday season Family! teamed up with parent company Heritage Publishing Inc. to bring a special gift to each child at the Hubbard House. Family! staff threw a party for the children that included reading an inspirational story about a tree of wishes. Te children were able to express their creativity by decorating leaves with their own wishes and placing them on a tree. “Te kids were so excited to show me their leaves on the tree,” says Tracy Knight, volunteer program specialist at the Hubbard House. One Family! volunteer noted that “the smiles on the children’s faces as they left meant that for a little while they had been able to just be children and enjoy themselves.” After picking out their special gift, the children shared cupcake treats with their mothers donated by Sweet By Holly.
