Every December, CFNC looks to individuals, businesses, and organizations to host holiday parties in our eight classrooms to help spread some holiday cheer to our students. All of our students make a wishlist of what they want, and our incredible partners in the community will collect the gifts, plan holiday crafts, and bring delicious treats into the classroom. Some groups even brought a real Santa Claus to hand out gifts!

Like our classrooms, each party was wonderfully unique. One group did a holiday themed puppet show, another group planned game stations that included wrapping their CEO in toilet paper! In one party, the kids got to decorate gingerbread men with frosting and candy, which was a huge hit with our students. One thing each party had in common however, was that each room was filled with smiles and squeals of excitement. Each child received the gift that he or she had asked for, which made the holidays a little bit brighter for our students and families.
