2017 TEAM Donations

Neighbors and visitors to our display, you outdid yourselves this year with contributions to our Christmas on Rose Dawn gift drive for 30 very lucky Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries (TEAM) families!!! You donated 380 gifts and HEB giftcards so that these families in need will have a wonderful Christmas…thank you so much!!

And a very special thanks to Scoutmaster Scott Peterson and Boy Scout Troop 626 who partnered with us again this year to make this happen. They coordinated communicating with the families, collecting wrapping paper and boxes for us, collecting giftcards, planning logistics for deliveries, and 14 Scouts and their families picked up and delivered the gifts over two days to some very happy families! I’m so proud of these boys and what they accomplished…they were such a tremendous help. Here are some pics of them at work…

And a huge thanks to my wife Jennifer Schultz for all the efforts she puts into this. She spends countless hours making tags for the tree, sorting and wrapping presents, keeping the lists organized and so many other duties. This is her idea and she takes on more families every year.

Scott Peterson, Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 626 said this – “On behalf of Troop 626, I want to say a huge thanks to Jennifer and Doug for their amazing energy, hard work and dedication to making Christmas on Rose Dawn such a great success for our community again this year. It was truly a privilege for our scouts and their families to be able to deliver these gifts. Thanks to all those who adopted the families and donated the gifts, your generosity makes such an impact on these families in need. I spoke to every adopted family several times over the past few weeks and on behalf of them I pass on their heartfelt thanks to you all! Merry Christmas!”

Thank you again GLF neighbors and Merry Christmas!!!!
