We are on our 6th year of working with Mike and the James D. Rielly Foundation. Mike is the most amazing Santa and takes nothing for himself in return. Our clients absolutely love him and we gladly donate to the foundation to help with the continuation of their fabulous work with children and families of the military, law enforcement and first responders.

As a board member on the James D Reilly Foundation, I have witnessed firsthand the tearful gratitude of individuals and famililes in their hour of need.

These needs have included but are not limited to, a payment of a bill, a handicapped accessible ramp or even presents under a tree.

The James D Rielly Foundation goes above and beyond in assuring that not only are these needs met but that it done in a manner where Hope is restored.

Hope it’s actually our greatest gift to others. I am proud to serve on a foundation that recognizes this!

Phenomenal boots on ground organization that spreads the magic of Christmas throughout the year to Military, First Responders, and Law Enforcement personnel; helping those in need during their most difficult time.

Wonderful charity who focuses on active military as well as veterans and first responders who are most in need. They work to provide joy all year round not just during the holiday season. They have done things like reconstruct a bathroom so a handicap child has easy access, helped families who have lost everything in house fires and provided assistance to handicapped vets. This is a 100% volunteer non-profit where all funds donated go directly to those in need.

This foundation does exactly what St. Nicholas did during his time by anonymously helping those who are in need. We all should do the same.
