Emily’s Path is sending out special thanks to Andrea McNeece, whose superpower is Christmas shopping! Based upon referrals from area schools, churches and the Boys and Girls Club, Emily’s Path fulfilled the wish lists for 33 people this holiday season, buying:

  • 65+ toys, books, movies, art kits and sporting goods
  • 65+ clothing items
  • 6 pairs of boots and shoes
  • 20+ household items (blankets, pillows, towels, dishes, Christmas ornaments, etc.)
  • plus a whole bunch of pajamas, socks, underwear, onesies, diapers, pacifiers, cosmetics and other items

Andrea single-handedly did all of the shopping for 25 of our 33 gift recipients! She is pictured above getting ready for one of her gift deliveries. She also helped out with our purchases for the Aspirus Wausau Hospital pediatric unit, somehow securing an iPad Mini from Best Buy even after being told they were sold out!

Of course, all of this was made possible by YOU! Thank you to our supporters for a record-breaking cookie and pizza fry sale. You made Christmas happen for a lot of people this year. Peace, joy and love to you and your families.
