It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year……..and at the top of our Colleagues’ holiday wish list is the joy of bringing Christmas cheer and magic to the lives of the children of our own LARE Students…..our extended American Training Family!
Our LARE students are working hard and doing their part by earning certifications and gaining employment to ensure that future Christmases will be bright for their families. While they are students, however, financial stresses can extinguish bright holiday spirits. That’s where we are fortunate enough to be able to step in!
We trimmed the trees, strung the lights, and decorated the hallways to transform Campanelli Drive into a Winter Wonderland for our annual LARE Christmas Party, held Dec. 22.
Students and their families joined for the morning, visiting with Santa and a few of his elves. The North Pole even sent along a few of its best gingerbread men, too!
Our own Santa’s helpers donated wrapping paper and time collecting and wrapping gifts. We had so many helpers this year including our Partners Mike Milczareh, General Truck Center in Methuen, and LaPlume & Sons Printing in Lawrence, all who supported this cherished event through our Fund-A-WOW! donation program.
Through Toys for Tots and many other generous donations, our students’ children received gifts to brighten their holidays and fill the halls of American Training and LARE Institute with the beautiful sound of children’s joy and laughter.
