Giving back is something important to all of us monkeys at Spotted Monkey Marketing. On Saturday, December 1, 2018, all of us gathered EARLY for the 15th Annual Secret Families. It is a day unlike any other in our community, creating a magical Christmas for families in need.
Secret Families is a nonprofit organization that serves Delaware County by giving those in need a decorated Christmas tree, gifts for everyone in the family, a bible, necessities and a $50 Meijer gift card so the family can purchase a Christmas dinner.
Secret Families volunteers are split up into four different groups delivery, shopping, wrapping and tree delivery.
Shopping began at 6 a.m. at Meijer where each shopper had 20 minutes to buy gifts for each family member.
After the gifts were purchased, volunteer drivers transported them to Toyota of Muncie, where more volunteers wrapped them. 5 hours after the event began, the delivery groups went to make the first deliveries. This year, Secret Families served a total of 363 families and had over 2,100 volunteers!!
