Did we forget to mention that all of these programs are FREE for families?! That’s right there’s no cost for families to participate in these purposeful programs! However, they are not free for GiGi’s to provide. During this season of giving, #givingTuesday, and end of year giving we ask that you please keep GiGi’s in mind. Your donations help make all of the above possible.
