“Life is messy and full of the unexpected. Peace is often elusive.” I was reminded of these truths recently – it was exactly what I needed to reset my headspace on the importance of the holiday season.
New Circles Community Services is a not-for-profit agency that provides basic necessities for people living in poverty. Every November and December, New Circles has an anonymous gift-giving program called the Holiday Angel program. This year, the Grade 8s decided to get involved in the program. We were given a wish list of much-needed items to fill for a family over the holidays.
