Just a quick thank you to the Holiday Break In team and everyone that works behind the scenes on this wonderful tradition. During the 28 month journey/nightmare that our family was stuck in, people never stopped spreading love over our family. Your surprise was very humbling and unexpected. This old man never liked surprises, but the kids faces as they opened their gifts was wonderful. Thanks doesn’t seem like enough, but thank you so much for everything you guys did for our family. My Wife was and is the reason our family is so strong, the kids take her lead and might be some of the best humans out there and they just don’t know it yet. You showed them what community means and I know they will pay it forward when they get older. Because of people like your staff.

Much Love

The Saboo’s
