A Month of Giving and Gratitude

Donations for UpsideDown Moments
Items received over the month of November!

We had a lot to be thankful for in November at UpsideDown Moments! It has been a month filled with heartwarming moments and community generosity. We're thrilled to share that special requests were fulfilled, bringing smiles to those with unique needs. Our Super Saturday Celebration was yet another success, bringing joy to the hearts of many children and their families. The generosity of our community shone brightly as numerous items were donated for our gift drive benefiting Sterling Middle School, ensuring that students have a brighter holiday season. In addition, we received several donations of clothing and other essential items. As we reflect on November, we're excited about the positive momentum and the anticipation of upcoming events that promise to spread even more love and joy. Thank you to everyone who continues to make UpsideDown Moments a beacon of hope and kindness in our community.

Thank you for fulfilling special requests for UpsideDown Moments

Thank you for all the special request donations this month!


We are overwhelmed with gratitude as we extend a warm and sincere thank you to our incredible community for rallying together and fulfilling special requests that make a world of difference. This month we have quite a few special requests we put out to the community. Thanks to your generosity, a teen boy in foster care is now equipped with warm winter clothing and boots, ensuring he faces the colder months with comfort and confidence. For a precious baby in need, a cozy crib mattress and bedding have been provided, creating a safe haven for restful nights. Additionally, children recently placed in foster care have received bedroom items, adding a touch of warmth and personalization to their new space. Your kindness and support are the threads that weave a tapestry of hope, love, and comfort for those who need it most. We are immensely grateful for your unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of these deserving individuals. Together, we are creating a community that cares and uplifts.
