Thank you to all who donated! You rock!!A message we just received:

Friends, Family and students of Apple Valley National Karate:

A very heartfelt "THANK YOU" for your generous donations to the Cornerstone Christmas Shop.

Because of you, we will be able to serve the 386 children who signed up to "shop" for Christmas presents for their Mom and siblings.

No child should ever have to be affected by domestic violence but to those who have, having a Merry Christmas helps their healing.

Again, "THANK YOU" and may you be blessed and have the happiest of holiday season!
