The goal of the Brigade is to use the spirit of Christmas as a catalyst for love, peace, joy, and renewed hope, the reason for the season. Christmas 2019, our second year in operation, did just that. We substantially expanded our impact and improved the service we provided to the families. We met so many beautiful people, listened to their stories, met their children, and hopefully brought them joy. We certainly saw many smiles, warm hearts, and grateful minds. Our families included the homeless, special needs, a family that fled religious persecution as Christians in Eygpt, spousal abuse, and simply those that have fallen upon financially hard times. Here is a summary of the 2019 season, a season only made possible by the hearts of our donors and volunteers.

We extend a special thanks to our corporate sponsor, the One Stop Generator Shop and its amazing employees for the provisions, volunteer hours, and heart they poured into this season. Thank you Jon and Jess Andio. We also extend a special thanks to the never ending heart of the Palm Beach Country Estates community. Thank you Jennifer, Jeff, Bob, Cindi, and the others.
My parents always lit up our home at Christmas. The warmth, glow, happiness, and hope it gave me still lives in me. My hope for the LW Brigade is that we can do the same for others.
