BATAVIA – Batavia United Way is celebrating the accomplishments of its holiday programs and events.

According to a news release, hundreds of people came together to make the three programs a success this holiday season.

The Adopt-A-Senior program provided 88 residents of Riverain Senior HUD Housing with overflowing bags of groceries, homemade cookies and treats in addition to a complimentary made-to-order omelette bar and brunch, the release stated.

The Batavia United Way worked with the Batavia Schools to help bring Christmas cheer to the 88 kids who live at Northern Illinois Academy, a residential facility for children ages 8-18 with emotional issues, the release stated. Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets/Meijer provided gift cards, Danni Short provided goody bags and Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation provided beanie babies for the children at the academy.

The organization also provided Christmas gifts for 129 families and 298 children through the Adopt-A-Family program. The United Way partnered with the Batavia school district to screen and organize wish lists for the families.
