Hi Leap Peeps!
I am so excited to share an amazing opportunity we get to be a part of this holiday season. It’s Christmas Around Towne!!!
For the past couple years I’ve been able to work with Powerhouse Ministries supporting some of the most amazing women and children in our community. IT’s NO surprise these powerful ladies are up to more good work and I am honored that we get to join them in this generous opportunity.
This event will help SO many local families and bring SO many smiles to SO many faces. Please join in the fun.
How do I help?
Take an ornament off of the Giving Tree located on the wall next to the tea station in the lobby.
The ornament will detail out suggestions of a gift to bring back unwrapped for these many families in need.
Please note that Gift Cards (esp. Amazon, Walmart & Target) and Money are also welcomed.
Please return by Dec 17th at the latest but know that there will be earlier pick ups so the sooner the better.
What is Christmas Around Towne?
Christmas Around Towne is a collaborative community program offering families in Folsom in crisis or need the opportunity to receive assistance for Christmas with a dignified approach.
Families are invited to a celebration complete with games, songs, brunch and a message. Then each person is given a shopping voucher and invited to shop for gifts for their families.
Why do we do it?
Service is such an important aspect of the yogic tradition. It is one full limb of the 8 limbs of yoga as laid out by Patanjali. Giving back to the world is our honor and our hukam, a sacred command.
Who is eligible?
Folsom residents of any age who are in crisis or need. Such residents are often referred by agencies such as Twin Lakes Food Bank, Mercy Housing, Folsom PD, Churches, etc.
All applicants must apply in person at Powerhouse Ministries.
Big thanks also to Denise Kucharek for the amazing design of our Giving Tree and to all the staff/ownership of Leap Yoga for allowing this magic to happen in our home studio.
Thanks in advance to each of you who are blessed enough to give.
