Jason is a single dad raising his three year old son. They had been homeless about 4 months, living in a hotel, when they applied for our program. Jason and his son were one of five families adopted for Christmas by Dan Wilkinson and his staff at Datamax this year.
Upon delivering gifts Dan and his staff found that Jason and his son did not have a Christmas tree. After they delivered all of the gifts for the other families, Mr. Wilkinson called to let me know that they were shopping for a tree and ornaments as a surprise for Jason’s son. Jason was in the job lab when the tree came. He said it was the most beautiful thing that had happened for his family in a long time.
We are very thankful to Mr. Wilkerson. This is not the first Christmas that Mr. Wilkerson has adopted families here at Community LINC, but it was surely one of the most special.
