Secret Santas made this the best Christmas ever


My name is Angela and I live in Freeland. A little over one year ago I was a guest at the House of Hope in Langley, and the coalition there helped me to find permanent housing for me and my 4-year-old daughter Hailey, and we have been there now for this past year.

I am writing this letter to thank my Secret Santas who came to visit my daughter and me over the Christmas holidays. I was so very touched and surprised. I have never had so many people in my life who care and it really touches my heart and makes my daughter and me so happy.

Thank you with all my heart. It was the best Christmas I have ever had in my life and thank you to all who made it possible.

Bless you all,
