  My MOM is still making children happy (and warming my heart) ❤️  Peg’s Presents is featured in the new Dignity Housing newsletter

The Holiday season is a time filled with laughter, cheer, delicious food and unforgettable family moments. Unfortunately, for many of Dignity Housing’s residents, the holidays are a disheartening, harsh reminder of past insufficiencies and pain. They enter Dignity’s program at or below the poverty level, and what little money they have gets spent on basic necessities for themselves and their families. This can be burdensome- especially for those with children who may not understand why they can’t have certain things during the holiday season.

Enter Lee and Andrew Sequeira of Peg’s Presents. The giving foundation is named after Lee’s mother, Margaret (Peg) Romano, who adored children and loved gift giving, so the idea of providing presents to children in need was the perfect way to honor her memory. After researching local charities online, Lee found Dignity Housing and knew it was her organization of choice. For the past 5 years, Peg’s Presents has been donating gifts to every child at Dignity Housing during our annual holiday party and we are incredibly grateful. They put so much thought into each and every gift and it’s so wonderful to see the joy on the childrens faces when they receive special gifts from their “Holiday Angels”.

We must not, in trying to think about
how we can make a big difference,
ignore the small daily differences we
can make which, over time, add up to
big differences that we often cannot
foresee.”
~ Marian Wright Edelman

The quote above is a perfect illustration of how every little bit can help us at Peg’s Presents warm a child’s heart by providing a birthday gift they would not otherwise receive.

One (FUN) idea is to start a Peg’s Presents Piggy Bank!

We’re not even asking you to give up your daily latte, and we can assure you the return on your investment (the ear-to-ear grin of a very a happy child) is priceless! AND, you can show your kids how to help others.
