We want to say a special THANK YOU to everyone who helped us with the food pantry and Christmas baskets this year. The weather was wonderful, the confusion was as usual, but this is something we cannot practice in advance, so we’re always happy when all is done and things worked out fine.
We had some missed names this year, so we packed and distributed several boxes after Saturday morning, and we ended up with 175 total baskets this year. We really appreciate all the volunteers giving of their time and energy to make this project such a great success. We hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas, best of luck in the New Year and we look forward to working with you again next year.
A special thank you to Christ Church for letting us use their building. It is a great place to do this project, and we really appreciate it.
A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to Lyn and her crew for packing, to all the drivers who hauled food for the boxes and delivered the boxes. We could not do this without all your help.
We also thank the stores for ordering our groceries and making sure they were ready on time for us. Special thanks to Clarence Cardwell from Baltimore Market IGA for getting us bags, and for getting Eckrich to donate hams for the baskets. This was a special bonus, and everyone loved them.
WE WISH ALL OF YOU A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR, WITH MANY BLESSINGS AND MUCH SUCCESS IN 2016.
