2019 Operation Good Cheer
SCYR participated in the Operation Good Cheer program again this year, sponsored and coordinated by Child and Family Services of Michigan. The program grants holiday wishes to chil- dren in foster care throughout Michigan by distributing gifts via plane or ground transportation.
Through this all volunteer program, the ranchers received some wonderful Christmas gifts. Each rancher created a wish list which were sent to donors that purchased and wrapped gifts then took them to drop off locations for transport. Additional volunteers gathered, sorted, loaded, and transported gifts throughout the state of Michigan.
On the day of delivery, SCYR staff traveled to the Lansing Regional Airport and collected the gifts and brought them back to the ranch. Christmas morning was a bit more special for our ranch- ers thanks to all the donors and volunteers that participated in the Operation Good Cheer Program. The ranchers received many won- derful gifts including some bikes, electronics, coats, basketballs, shoes, fishing poles, and toys galore. Even more special was that they each received items they specifically wished for.
