Over the last few years we have had tremendous outpouring of support from the community for our Santa’s Secret Workshop. The event was a huge success and our individuals had a great time shopping for as well as giving the gifts. Most of the individuals love the fact that they are able to give gifts, especially to people they were unable to give gifts to in the past.
Our individuals live on a very limited income and after their monthly expenses are subtracted from their income, they seldom have enough to think about Christmas gifts. We are again asking for donations for our Santa’s Secret Workshop. A list of items that we are looking for (new or like new products) follows. If you would rather make a monetary donation for us to make purchases of items we might need, please make checks payable to Self Help Enterprises and mail to 2300 W. LeFevre Road, Sterling, IL 61081. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
