Jandel Homes recently wrapped up its 6th annual Fill A House campaign, generating a total of 306 toy donations, 517 food items and $9,370 in monetary contributions. Jandel Homes and Meadows of Morinville once again partnered with the Morinville Marvelous Moms’ Adopt A Family program for the campaign. All donations and money raised are provided to families in need within the Morinville and Sturgeon County areas.
“It’s great to see our business partners, the Town of Morinville and our residents in Meadows of Morinville all come together and rally behind Fill A House.” says Courtney Iverson, Corporate Services Manager with Jandel Homes. “In times like these past few years where the economy has been tough on many families, we are grateful that we’re able to be a part of such a wonderful cause.”
Jandel Homes’ exclusive community, Meadows of Morinville, hosted a Cocktail Reception and Silent Auction on December 5th, with all proceeds going towards the Fill A House campaign. The event was free of charge with a donation, and the general public was encouraged to attend. With over 60 people making it out to the event, they were very happy with the proceeds raised.
The Morinville Marvelous Moms’ will be busy as we get closer to Christmas. With the collection of donations coming to an end this week, they’ll be busy hitting the stores for any last-minute items needed for all their hampers. On the weekend, the Moms and all their volunteers will be wrapping up gifts and delivering hampers to local families.
“Every Christmas season, the Morinville Marvelous Moms adopt as many families as we can that would usually go without to supply them with all kinds of things – food, toys and toiletries,” says Sarah Hall, Organizer of the Morinville Marvelous Moms’ Adopt A Family Program. She goes on to explain that the campaign means so much to her because it, “is the relief of knowing that you have a community that supports you and that there will always be people there that love you enough to pay attention and help you out.”
