Magical Christmas Evenings
Magical Christmas Evenings is a project so dear to our souls, held for 4 years in a row, which aims to bring together children, parents or future parents, all feeling the magic of the family, on the eve of Christmas. This year we spent magical Christmas evenings with children in foster care in Moşniţa Nouă - "Efata" Foundation, Othniel Orphanage. In this center of residential type live 19 children, aged between 2 and 18.
Santa and his elves have been generous this year with these kids and visited them several times.
The first visit was from the generous elves from the SSS company, who offered the children sweets and winter footwear, so necessary in their everyday lives.
The second visit brought the children the presents prepared by the elves from Continental Automotive Timisoara, Commercial Vehicles and Aftermarket BU, Titan Machinery and the friends of our Association from St. Mary's Greek Catholic Church in New York, consisting in hygiene products, clothes, sweets, fruits and toys. However, the children also received surprise packages from the supporters of this so dear project, Cristian and Gabriela CIGAN, Oana Maria CRISTESCU and Cristina CRĂCIUN, packages so beautifully packaged and decorated by Briana CIGAN.
The evening would not have been complete without carols. The Secondary School students from Urseni commune, Moşniţa Nouă village, led by their teachers Sorina Milin, Octavia Codru, Aura Bogdan and Anca Fluture sang and made everyone happy with carols, their efforts being rewarded with sweets and winter themed cups.
We thank all those who made this joy possible, the children’s gratitude and bright faces while receiving the wonderful gifts is the best gift received before the holidays.
The success of this event determines us to organize such moments in other times of the year too, facilitating at the same time regular socialization with these children and maintaining a permanent contact with them.
