Recent Ethical Action:
EHSA sponsored children for the holidays this year. They were identified by Children First/Communities in Schools, a project of the Buncombe County Schools, to help needy families with children.
Children First gave us a wish list for each child we sponsored; the list included things the children wanted as well as needed.
We received enough donations to sponsor 25 children, spending about $100 for each child. We purchased many winter jackets, shoes, sneakers, clothing, games, arts and crafts, sports items, stuffed animals, toy trucks…
We tried to look through the eyes of the children as well as their parents when we added things to our shopping cart; at times, we sacrificed buying a pair of sweatpants so we could get more toys.
Our gifts may have been the only ones these children received.
We are very grateful to the generosity of so many people who donated money; they helped to add much joy to these children.
