Santa Ana, CA – 12/22/2023 – The Orange County Children's Therapeutic Arts Center (OCCTAC) is thrilled to share the heartening success of the OCCTAC Social Butterflies' Holiday Wish List Program 2023, a compassionate initiative that brought immense joy and fulfillment to families during the festive season.

This year's program, made possible through the invaluable support of sponsors and dedicated Day School coordinator, Joanny Sanchez, touched the lives of numerous families by ensuring their holiday wish lists were not only heard but also fulfilled. The generosity of sponsors allowed participating families to experience the magic of Christmas through the receipt of brand-new toys, clothing, gift cards, and essential food items.

OCCTAC extends their deepest gratitude to the sponsors who played a pivotal role in making this program a resounding success. Special thanks to Lloyd A. B., Kelly D. P. D. C., Lynne T., Edith F., Claudia A., Juliana S., Wynne R., Amelia D., Erina A. G., Maribel M., Kathy A., Vanessa M., Stephanie S., Melinda D., Erika E., Faby L., Terri C. R., Carlos T. & Christina T., and friends Silvia P., Tony & Nancy S., Kari V., and Jenni S.

In addition to our sponsors, we express our appreciation to local businesses—Jv's Creations OC, JV's Sweet Creation's OC, JSquad Concessions, & Jojo's Taquitos—for their commitment to making this Christmas season extraordinary for countless families.

"We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of support from our sponsors and the community. Their generosity has allowed us to make a significant impact and bring holiday cheer to those who may have thought it impossible this year," said Joanny Sanchez.
