The Holiday Season means a lot to us at Ritter Center. For the last 31 years, we get to play Santa Claus and provide holiday cheer to families and adults in need in our community. And year after year, thanks to your support, our programs are a huge success.
This year our Family to Family gift program provided household items to 49 seniors and toys to 102 kids from 47 families. Additionally, our Toy Store Program, open to all families in the county, provided holiday cheer to 403 kids from 158 families.
