Snowflake 19

​Operation Snowflake at Via West

The holidays are upon us and we have two special respite sessions to celebrate in December. December 6-8th is for our kids, teens, and young adults, and we will bring in 13 tons of snow to transform campus. December 13-15th is for our adult participants, and we will have a live band and firefighters to deliver the Christmas tree. Both weekends will have lots of arts and crafts, as well as stocking decorating. Each year, we teach our participants the importance of giving back by stuffing and decorating holiday stockings for a local shelter. This year, we will be donating to West Valley Community Services.

How can you help? Bring your extra, unused toiletries to either of our locations by December 6th! We are in need of the following travel size items:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Soap/body wash
  • Lotion
  • Shower caps
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Dental floss
  • Socks
  • Mittens/gloves
  • Small toys (playing cards, spinners, etc.)

We are also looking for volunteers to help out with the activities during both sessions. Please contact Nic Rodriguez [email protected] for more information.
