Second Chance hosted its 5th annual Christmas Party in Berceni, a much anticipated and joyful event for the community`s 600 neediest people. We are grateful for the generous support of corporations, private donors, enthusiastic Romanian and expatriate volunteers who make this celebration possible.
The people of Berceni were heartfelt, humble and truly grateful for the day`s events. They enjoyed Christmas carolers, a welcome from the mayor, live music and a typical Romanian Christmas meal prepared by volunteers from the village. All 274 children received a gift and candy from Santa Clause as well as enjoyed outdoor games coordinated by energetic volunteers. Additionally, 175 families took home 4 large grocery bags stuffed with food and toiletry essentials.
We would like to express gratitude and appreciation to our Corporate Sponsors for their support:
MANY THANKS to our families and friends around the world who made private donations. We received funds from the people of many countries: Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland and Russia.
