The December 2016 Edition of “The Chirp”, the official Sparrow’s Nest newsletter, features an inspirational note from founder Krista Jones.

Krista Jones, Founder of Sparrow's Nest CharityAs I count my blessings this holiday season, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge one of the most significant blessings in my life, which is the support of my local community. Because of your support of this grassroots charity, Sparrow’s Nest was able to feed over 500 people in 2016.

We appreciate not only the monetary donations, but also the food donations, the feel-good bags, and the gift card donations for our local families. These donations bring a sense of relief — mentally, physically and monetarily — to our recipients who are trying to maintain a sense of normalcy during their time of need.

My biggest wish for you this holiday season is the gift of health and happiness as we move towards the new year. Have a wonderful holiday with those that you hold near and dear and we look forward to unveiling our next big steps in 2017.

Here are some other highlights:

  • Make a resolution to help others in need. Learn how you can run with Team Sparrow in 2017!
  • ‘Tis the season! Learn how you and your co-workers can help Sparrow’s Nest and earn a tax deduction.
