There may have been singing but definitely a whole lot of wrapping as 2 teams adopted families through local Morristown organizations. Way to show the true meaning of the Holidays! Great job!
10U Major – Hope for the Holidays
The Colonials Girls 10U Major team and their families celebrated by helping a family in need through Hope for the Holidays, a holiday giving campaign sponsored by Cornerstone Family Programs & Neighborhood House, a Morristown-based non-profit organization providing support to local families.
The team “adopted a family” and purchased or donated many gifts to help a single mom and her two young children have a special holiday season. To get into the Holiday spirit, the girls had a gift wrapping/pizza party at Mennen after their 4-1 victory over the Montclair Blues.
14U White – Family Promise
The Colonials Girls 14U White team sponsored a family for the second year in a row through Family Promise, another Morristown non-profit organization helping local families find affordable housing.
This year’s family included a mom and her two daughters. Colonials families purchased gifts from a wish list which contained many “need to have” items as opposed to “want to have items.” It was a great experience and a positive way for them to give back to those who are not as fortunate.
