Reflecting on the Impact of the 2023 Season of Caring: A Community Success Story

Spreading Joy and Hope Together

Since 1989, VOA Southeast, in partnership with WALA FOX10, has brought hope and joy to thousands of people in need through the Season of Caring’s 10 Caring Gifts initiative with the support of many generous businesses, schools, and individuals throughout our communities.

Last year’s Season of Caring 10 Caring Gifts initiative was nothing short of remarkable, thanks to your unwavering support. Through the 10 Caring Gifts campaign, we were able to provide assistance to those in need in ways that brought warmth, comfort, and joy to thousands of individuals and families including at-risk youth, foster care children, homeless veterans, low-income seniors, individuals with intellectual disabilities, and community members across our region by way of over thirty partner organizations and churches.
