The presents filled the church halls, everything from MP3s to Justin Bieber CDs. The First Born Church in Fort Pierce had captained a successful toy drive for the under privileged children in the area. Volunteers donated their time to make every gift look as beautiful as possible. The gifts were set to be delivered Christmas Eve and everyone was excited to see the look of joy and excitement on every child’s face.
Just three days before the big delivery, a Grinch broke into the church and stole $200 worth of gifts intended for the local children. The pastor of the church knew that the Grinch would not prevail, and that the toy drive could still be a holiday miracle for so many people.
When Renee Radabaugh, CEO Paragon Events, heard about the heart-wrenching story she was determined to defeat the Grinch and make Christmas happen just as the pastor had envisioned.
The day before Christmas Eve Mrs. Radabaugh was able to replace every gift that had been robbed from the church. ” I am so blessed and fortunate to be able to help. Every child should experience unwrapping a present on Christmas morning.”
So, much like the Dr. Seuss story, the Grinch tried to steal Christmas, but the true Christmas spirit will always overcome. Happy Holidays! And YOU still have a chance to make a difference in the lives of others this holiday. Please click here so that Paragon Events may donate on your behalf to the charity of your choice.
