Right now, a 'sense of normalcy' means a toy!
 

Xmas Gift-Giving 2017

Among the tens of thousands of beneficiaries we serve annually, at least 40% are children—a key demographic within our client-population.

Throughout the year, the RIVER FUND does things for children living in poverty that help to give them a “sense of normalcy.” What does that mean? Most children in poverty know that their situation is not normal. They can see how other people live, and they are deeply aware of their own disadvantages. Sometimes small gestures make a big difference: A turkey on the table at Thanksgiving, a gift at Xmas or a present for their birthday. These little things help children in poverty to grow up feeling that they are also “normal,” like other kids. They help prepare their minds to see the world as a place that is available to them too. And only a mind that can see opportunities, can break the cycle of poverty. That’s why it’s so important.

The Holiday Season is a particularly heavy lift “on both sides of the line” as we say here at the RIVER FUND. At this time of the year, a “sense of normalcy” for kids in poverty means getting a present—it's that simple... and it's that challenging, too.

We are extremely grateful to you for being part of this vital effort. Thank you!
