A brighter Christmas was made possible for many of our consumers through the generosity of donations collected by John Manwaring. John, who works at a local tavern, enlisted the help of his patrons and friends to provide gifts to consumers of ARISE to make their Christmas a little merrier. Thank you, John, for all your hard work to make this possible for the second year in a row.
