2017 Pay It Forward Holiday Giving Program

new attitudes marquette dance studio pay it forward 2022 holiday giving program

New Attitudes Dance Studios is beginning our 9th Annual Pay It Forward holiday giving program at the studio this season. We have partnered with Lake Superior Village through the Marquette Housing Commission, which provides subsidized housing to low income families.

Each year we sponsor families in this program to help ensure the children have a wonderful Christmas morning that they are otherwise unable to have. Although our program is about collecting and giving gifts to these children, the efforts made by all who give to and support our program each year most certainly carry with them the true meaning of Christmas and the spirit of giving.

This year we are sponsoring eight children and have set up a tree at our studio that will be filled with angel ornaments representing all the little angels we will be collecting for. Each angel will have personal information such as age, sizes and interests. We are hoping to encourage any of you at the studio who might like to be involved to simply take an angel off the tree and return it with your gift for that angel. With the presence of the tree at the studio, we also hope that the kids will be aware of the importance of giving during the holidays and feel involved and excited about the program.

We are also collecting second hand coats, boots, hats and mittens, in addition to our specific angels. These are items that all of the children need, plus many more that we are not sponsoring. Most all of us already have most of these items in our closets at home making it even easier for anyone and everyone to help be a part of our program this year! We are looking for all sizes, and as many as possible.

There is an abundance of causes to support during the holidays, so we always appreciate each and every person and family that contributes to Pay It Forward at the studio. Our program and all the angel information can also be found below and also on our Facebook page.
