CHRISTMAS TIME IN BREEZY

POINT, NEW YORK TAKES ON A

DIFFERENT TONE THIS YEAR.

THE PEOPLE OF BREEZY POINT HAVE

A LOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR.

CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT FAMILY AND

FRIENDS.

TODAY IS A GREAT EXAMPLE.

IT IS ENCOURAGING, EVERYBODY

STARTING FEELING LIKE OKAY, WE

ARE MAKING PROGRESS.

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON,

OPERATION BLESSING TEAMED UP

WITH OTHER GROUPS TO SPONSOR A

CHRISTMAS LIGHTING CEREMONY, THE

PEOPLE HERE WILL NEVER FORGET.

CHRISTMAS IS THE FEAST OF THE

FAMILY.

WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IS BROUGHT

THIS FAMILY BACK AFTER MONTHS OF

BEING APART.

AND THEY HAVE PUT TOGETHER THE

GREATEST TREE LIGHTING WE HAVE

EVER HAD.

WITHOUT THEM BEING HERE AND

DOING WHAT THEY HAVE DONE FOR

OUR PEOPLE IN OUR HOMES, AND

THEN TO ASSIST AND PUT THIS TYPE

OF EVENT TOGETHER IS

MIND

BOGGLING.

I WAS OVERWHELMED WITH THE

DESTRUCTION.

I AM OVERWHELMED WITH THE

ASSISTANCE THAT OPERATION

BLESSING HAS GIVEN US.

WE WANT TO GIVE BACK TO

PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST SO MUCH TO

SEE THEM ENJOY CHRISTMAS

LIGHTING AND RECONNECT.

KIDS BE ABLE TO LINE UP AND GO

TO THE TENT AND PICK WHATEVER

TOY AND LAUGH AND GIGGLE AND

SMILE.

FORGET ABOUT THE HURT AND PAIN.

JUST ENJOY CHRISTMAS.

IT IS AMAZING.

*

AN ADDED TREAT WAS A FREE

CONCERT BY IRISH TENORS.

*

IT IS HARD TO DESCRIBE.

NOW IT IS FEELING LIKE THE

COMMUNITY IS GETTING BACK

TOGETHER AGAIN.

I HAVE NOT SEEN OUR KIDS AND

FAMILIES SO HAPPY IN THE LAST 40

DAYS.

IT IS MIRACULOUS.

I FEEL THE SAME WAY.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU WOULD HAVE TOLD

ME A MONTH AGO WE WOULD BE ABLE

TO DO THIS, I WOULD HAVE SAID I

DON'T THINK WE COULD PULL IT

OFF.

ALL OF THE KIDS GOT TOYS.

SANTA ON HAND TO PUT A SMILE ON

THEIR FACES.

IT WAS REALLY NICE.

WE SAW THE TREE GET LIT AND

HOT CHOCOLATE AND TOYS.

WE GOT TO MAKE COOKIES AND

OPERATION BLESSING PROVIDED ALL

OF IT.

THANKFUL.

OPERATION BLESSING WAS

THRILLED TO TEAM UP WITH LOCAL

GROUPS TO BRING HOPE AND JOY TO

THIS DEVASTATED COMMUNITY.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE'LL CONTINUE

TO HELP THOSE THAT NEED IT THE

MOST AROUND THE WORLD.

THANK YOU OPERATION BLESSING!
