Sevierville, TN–The Smoky Mountain Children’s Home invites churches, businesses, organizations and individuals to participate in its annual Christmas offering. The Home always provides gifts to the 110 children in foster care, as well as the 60 youth living on campus.
Dr. Walt Mauldin, Executive Director, stated, “Our goal is to provide our children and youth the best Christmas they have ever experienced. So, funds must be raised above and beyond our budget. Many of our children do not have families who are able to give them anything. We step in and help share the joys of Christmas with them. It is hard to know what they would want, but one thing is for certain: they love receiving gift cards. Like any other young person, they love to go shopping!”
“Why do we do this?” Mauldin asked. “We simply do this because our children deserve better! Would you consider providing a special Christmas love offering for the children and youth of the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home? Your generosity will bless these less fortunate children and youth and create the best Christmas ever for each of them.”
For many of the children and youth at The Home, the Christmas season is often filled with uncertainty. Approximately 72% of the children and youth in their care have been abused, abandoned or neglected by their families. It is impossible for them to return home and experience the normal happiness this season brings.
Please send your Christmas offering to: Smoky Mountain Children’s Home, 449 McCarn Circle, Sevierville TN 37862 or call 865-453-4644, Ext. 118 for more information.
