Memories of Colonies Holiday Miracles 2016
As the Inland Empire enters the summer months, sometimes it's good to look back at the joy hundreds of children and their families received with the help of business owners throughout the area an annual Holiday Miracles charity event. Sponsors that included Colonies Partners, Pacific Development Group, Mountain View Chevrolet in Upland, Larson O’Brien, Crebs Family Foundation, Frontier Communities, Kohl’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Target, Albertsons and Home Depot. Hall of famers James Worthy and Eric Dickerson attended, giving inspirational speeches, spending time with families and taking photos with the kids.
At the event, hundreds of children selected based on need, were given free shopping sprees. The kids were referred by Hope Through Housing, House of Ruth, OPARC, Children’s Fund, Children’s Hope, House of Ruth, Upland Housing Authority, Pacific Lifeline, and Foothill Family Shelter. Since 2007, nearly 2,000 underprivileged children have been invited.
Here are some of the photos of the kids:
