During this holiday season, the CasaManager team would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you for all that you do on behalf of children and volunteers in your communities.

As with last year, this year has still had its challenges. While life has gotten a little better, many of us still miss being able to see and hug our loved ones and we have all had to maintain some adjustments to the new normal for the foreseeable future. But we have all hung in there as best as we can!

As we prepare to close out another year and ring in a new one, it is our hope that better days are on the horizon.

So this holiday season, let’s take time to receive the joy, love, and laughter that the holiday brings and let’s leave our worries in the past as we prepare to celebrate the holiday in many of the same ways necessary in 2020—that may be Zoom, FaceTime, social media, and a simple but meaningful phone call or text message.

For those of you who have loved ones serving overseas in our armed forces, we thank them for their service and sacrifice.

A pandemic may change HOW we do things, but it can’t change WHY we do things. The how is different from anything we have experienced before but the why is still powerful—because we all care about children and each other.

So spread the love, joy, and happiness that the holiday season brings in any way you can, even if it is from a distance.

In whichever way you celebrate this season, we hope that it is full of life and light.

Live well and be well!

Wishing you all the best from the CasaManager Team!

Jeff Hough, Gina James, Kevin Lane, and Kevin Ghetia
