Most of the time it is challenging to have decorations or small items around the home at Malabar due to the individuals supported in the home. But with the Christmas season upon us, one of the staff , Ruth H, felt that they needed to have some decorations and a tree. It is not possible to have the tree indoors , so she creatively came up with the idea to put the tree on the front porch. Ruth took the initiative to to find a tree on kijiji and went there prepared to pay for it herself. When she told the family what it was for they were kind enough to donate the tree and some decorations. Once back at Malabar with the collaboration of Lisa R and Emma W. working diligently together at midnight on Saturday night, the tree is up and decorated beautifully on the front porch. What a wonderful story of teamwork and cooperation at Malabar to make the children at Malabar so happy. Thanks so much to Ruth H, Emma W and Lisa R.!
