2020 The Great Holiday Giveback Tree Tag

Walter Payton always believed it was important to give back.......And so do we!


"There are a lot of studies that show that one act of kindness to these children has a 40% chance of making that child have a completely different outcome in their life. What we hope, is that we can get a kid to believe in something and to believe in themselves. Children have always brought a tremendous amount of joy to me and I feel that if you can catch them at a young age you can really change a life."


"Gifts during the Holidays for abused and neglected children may not seem like a lot, but in terms of establishing self-worth, confidence, and a feeling of pride, I believe it may mean everything. I want them to feel good about themselves and to have self-esteem and self-respect that they deserve - just as much as the kid down the street. Can you imagine the impact this has on these kids?..... Can you imagine?"
