Northeast Wisconsin Families in Need to be Presented “Best Christmas Ever”

The Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of Best Christmas Ever, a non-profit organization aimed at providing families in need an unforgettable Christmas experience, is looking for nominations of local families deserving of this once-in-a-lifetime gift.

Best Christmas Ever partners with business leaders and communities to lift up families who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own by providing them the ultimate Christmas. Gifts provided to the families depend on their needs and can range from everyday necessities, to appliances, services or money to cover bills such as medical expenses, groceries and vehicle repairs.

Best Christmas Ever, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in Minnesota in 2011, surprised 100 families across the country last year and gave additional help to 200 others. The Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of Best Christmas Ever was established in 2017, when members surprised a family in need in Manitowoc. This year, they hope to bless at least five families in Northeast Wisconsin.

“Our purpose is to make a long-lasting impact on families that have come upon hard times, and to truly change their lives for the better,” said Justin Spettel, leader of the Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of Best Christmas Ever. “It’s an amazing experience for everyone involved, and now, we need Northeast Wisconsin’s help in nominating families deserving of a Best Christmas Ever in 2018.”

The Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of Best Christmas Ever is taking nominations for families in need now through Thursday, Nov. 15.  Nominations can come from people in the community, or friends, relatives or co-workers of families in need; however, families cannot nominate themselves.
