The children can go to a different room and select Christmas presents for their parents. We have a wrapping stations so that all gifts are wrapped and ready for under the tree. This was made possible through local merchants, community donations, schools and Newcomers Club of Livingston County.
Every Saturday Bountiful Harvest provides a hot breakfast for anyone in need. The breakfast includes scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes or french toast,fruit, oatmeal, bagels, coffee and juice.
