“We honestly get so much enjoyment out of doing this!”

Every year around Thanksgiving, the Morris Family of Ridgewood begins its annual quest to purchase perfect gifts for every child in the Family Promise housing programs.  In 1988, Jim and Paddy Morris created this family tradition, which has grown to include multiple generations as well as family friends.  Paddy, who admits she loves Christmas more than anyone, says, “Opening our hearts to those in need is how I was raised and it’s how we have tried to raise our children and now the next generation. Even our granddaughters helped wrap the gifts this year!”

Special thanks to the entire Morris Family who make certain that children experiencing homelessness also experience all the joys of the holidays.
