On Friday December 18, more than 40 community members, S.O.S. volunteers, YO S.O.S. participants, and staff gathered at the Mediation Center for the annual S.O.S. Holiday Party. The party was an opportunity for people to enjoy good food and music together. Children played pin the carrot on the snowman and gathered at the craft tables making holiday cards and cottonball snowpeople. We also had a surprise visit from Santa (S.O.S. Violence Interrupter Basaime Spate), who took pictures with children and gave away toys!
