For over 20 years, Christ the King Church in Broad Ripple has provided a wonderful Christmas for families in need served by Noble.
This year, over 60 families were helped by "Christ the King Village," as they call themselves. After reviewing the need lists put together by our First Steps therapists, parishioners bought gifts and donated money. The school's children created holiday cards for each family, and confirmation candidates and sponsors delivered the gifts. Truly a team effort.
This spirit also comes through each year as the Sertoma Club of Broad Ripple hosts its annual holiday lunch for families in need served by Noble. This year, 12 First Steps families joined the Sertomans for a delicious luncheon and presents delivered by Santa and Mrs. Claus. It's a tradition going back well over 40 years!
And then there's Ingredion. When Joann Weaver moved to town, she began volunteering at Noble. After being hired by Ingredion, she shared her love of Noble with co-workers. That relationship hit a new level this year: staff collected $2,000 in donations and Ingredion matched it!
