The Joy of the Season is in Giving
In 2014, Silverado Hospice North Houston was inspired to adopt four kids through the Salvation Army Angel Tree.
Billy S., a Silverado Hospice patient, volunteered ringing bells for the Salvation Army at Christmas for many years. He loved making people smile, and ringing bells through the Salvation Army brought many smiles to many faces. 2014 was his last Christmas and his last to ring bells.
Billy’s kind and genuine heart inspired Silverado North Houston to adopt children from the Salvation Army Christmas Tree and spread the joy! We decided we would do this every year and call the event “Billy’s Kids” in his name.This year our office adopted three children! Our staff came together and donated gifts to make sure these kids had something under the tree for Christmas. We had a wonderful time shopping for our kids and can just imagine the smiles on their faces on Christmas morning.
"Should his heart break and the grief pour out, it would flow over the whole earth, it seems, and yet, no one sees it."
"When we need these healing times, there is nothing better than a good long walk."
"That day is lost on which one has not laughed."
