First Day of Christmas
That’s the only word I can use to describe this year’s First Day of Christmas decorating event held at Boystown in Marikina last Saturday, December 3, 2011. People donated tons of Christmas Decorations, toys, food and clothing! There were a few who also donated cash which we used for the Art Materials (we had a Jesus Bday Card contest), the Jesus Birthday Cake, prizes for the games, gasoline costs, extra food for the volunteers, water and ice.
The party was a joint project between The Edge Radio and PAS – the Philippine Association of Secretaries and Administrative Professionals.
At the end of the party, we had three fully decorated trees, one whole entertainment hall decked in trimming, four panels of faux stained glass (Doris Rodriguez and Vida made them by hand!) and more than a hundred happy children!
