Long Island, NY - December 12, 2017 - For 8 years this program has been held, Holiday Dreams has been able to give hope back to an average of 200-250 families per year. These families are able to register through schools, churches, community programs, after care, shelters and more. To make this a more personalized experience, each registered family is interviewed and then a request list is created for each child. By spending a minimum of $100 on each child and purchasing the gifts that they requested, Holiday Dreams gives children and their families hope during the holidays.
