How It All Began...
In 1988 Nicki Davis and a few generous volunteers adopted one family to bring the spirit of Christmas to their door.
Taking along Santa for the ride and delivering his sack full of toys and clothes for a little girl and her siblings.
Upon their arrival, the little girl threw her arms around a jolly fellow in a big red suit!
“Santa, I knew you wouldn’t forget me….last year I waited and waited, and you didn’t come,” she cried.
This true story inspired the mission, and The Joy of Giving was born.
