Jessica Fletcher with Bene’s Career Academy coordinated a “Letters to Santa” project for families served by the Pasco Kids First Healthy Families Program. The project started when the Phi Delta Kappa fraternity held a Christmas in July event. The kids in attendance wrote letters to Santa. The Bene Family created a Pasco Kids First Christmas tree with letters from the children. These letters gathered attention after being placed in decorated mailboxes as part of the tree at the Good Samaritan Clinic Festival of Trees event. The school staff and local community expressed an interest in fulfilling the letters. Fletcher created a website where people could donate by directly purchasing from a wish list on Amazon. All 16 kid’s letters were fulfilled, including 5 children who wished for beds. After a generous donation from Team Farrell the family received brand new beds. Fletcher and her team delivered, installed and furnished them with mattresses, sheets, comforters and pillows.
