Our cafeteria was transformed into a magical winter wonderland as mentors, mentees, and family members gathered for our Friends First Christmas Party.
While festive music and holiday cheer filled the air, Friends First Director Tilisha Harrison kicked off the party by thanking those who made this event possible, especially the mentors.
“We’d like to give a special thanks to our mentors, who show up and show out every other Saturday, and who go above and beyond even outside of those days,” Harrison said. “We really appreciate the work you put in with our kids.”
Throughout the day, guests participated in a variety of holiday activities by visiting beautifully decorated stations. Youth were able to create goodie bags of candy canes and other tasty treats at the Sweet Shop, pick out new hats and gloves at the Winter Wonder Wear station, decorate Christmas ornaments and cookies, enjoy hot chocolate with whipped cream, and have their faces painted.
