Holidays at The HUB

The generosity of our community during the holiday season never ceases to amaze the staff at The HUB! Thanks to many community members 12 young adults were sponsored and received holiday gifts. In addition to the sponsorship of young adults, The HUB partnered with Lincoln Center Kiwanis for year 2 of the Stocking Project.  This project mobilized knitters/crocheters throughout the community to make handmade stockings for young adults served by The HUB's programs. Lincoln Center Kiwanis members have been collecting donations that filled the stockings.  Each stocking was filled with a new book, art supplies, a handmade ceramic ornament, lotion, lip balm, toothbrush & toothpaste, a full-sized candy bar, socks, a hand-crafted hat & scarf, a game, toilet paper and a $20 in gift cards to Russ's Market and $10 to various local restaurants. 

 

The HUB distributed just over 100 filled stockings to young adults!  66 stockings went to young adults involved in programing at The HUB, 11 went to the children of HUB participants and 25 were delivered to the youth detention center for young people that will spend the holidays away from their loved ones.   

 

The HUB would like to thank Lincoln Center Kiwanis for organizing this project and for the hours of volunteering that was put into this project. We would also like to thank The Yarn Shop and Makit Takit Craft Studio for helping to mobilize the crochet and knitting community. Thank you to Francie & Finch for the book drive, Gomez Art Supply for the art supplies, Hobby Town for the games, Raising Canes, DaVincis, Butterfly Bakery and Russ's Market for gift cards.  Thank you to Theater Arts for Kids Builders Club for collecting candy bars. Thank you Star City Dental, Complete Family Dental & Optimal Dental for the toothbrushes and toothpaste.

 

The filled stockings were gifted to young adults during The HUB's annual holiday gathering.
