Thank you to everyone who participated in Adopt-a-Family 2020!

Thank you to all who joined us in our 2020 Adopt A Family Christmas gift giving program!  All of the agencies that received your gifts were overwhelmed by your generosity and so very thankful for your thoughtfulness! 

BPC was able to provide 77 children and at least 14 adults with gift packages, as well as providing  gift cards for numerous people in need of assistance with gas, grocery or Walmart purchases from the Dismas Home, Amoskeag Health, and BPC Pastor’s fund.

The Adopt A Family program brought great joy to many and we wanted to share just a few of the thank you sentiments we received along the way.  These sentiments were echoed by all of the agencies over and over again as the packages and gift cards were delivered:

“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful packages you put together for our families.  I know that they will all appreciate the kindness.  I'm sure their hearts will be as full as mine is right now.  This is so great!!” 

“Wow! That’s AMAZING!”

“REALLY!…Someone did this for me? they don’t even know me!”  (- from one of the foster child recipients) 

“The gift is not only in the actual package, but in the gift of learning that there is someone in the community who cares enough to put such care and love into purchasing  gifts just for them”

As Prince William, Duke of Cambridge stated earlier this month to families of essential workers in the United Kingdom, the BPC Mission Committee would like to say to all who participated in the Adopt A Family program:

“…you have helped warm our hearts by showing us the very best of human nature. In bleak times you give us hope about what can be achieved if we all work together.”

Many thanks and Merry Christmas!

May the peace of Christ be with you, 

The Bedford Presbyterian Church Mission Committee
