Lowe Team 12/09
Pat Lowe and her husband know what it’s like to struggle, having received help themselves in the past, so it was nice to be able to give back to the community that had helped them before in their time of need. The family the Lowes visited seemed uncomfortable at first, but when they saw the large bags of gifts they were more welcoming and asked the Lowes into their home. Pat commented on the lovely nativity the family had and invited them to services at Chestnut Ridge Church. After the visit, Pat claimed that she believed her children had gotten more out of the Gift Project than the family who received the gifts. Her two children were involved in the entire family adoption from start to finish. They shopped one day and wrapped the next, with her daughter wrapping seven bags of gifts. On delivery day her children were nervous, but they gained a whole new appreciation for what they have, and were happy to see they could help others who were less fortunate.
