Thanks for helping with the Christmas for Kids program

Dear Editor;

It’s time once again to say a big thank you to all the residents and businesses in East Grays Harbor County who helped to make the 2013 Christmas for Kids program such a success. Because of the generosity of so many, we were able to help 201 kids from 76 families to have a brighter, warmer holiday.

Special thanks go to the Women’s Auxiliary of the VFW, Fire District No. 5, Rolling Thunder and Tim Hartman of McCleary, who all assisted us in filling family requests. We also wish to make special mention of some of our corporate partners such as the Vaughan Company, Timberland Bank of Elma and the Dennis Company of Elma, whose monetary support we appreciate. Too numerous to mention individually are all the businesses who support us by allowing one of our toy barrels to be placed in their stores. On behalf of all the families who received assistance and the members of Faith Lutheran Church, who co-ordinates this project, we want to say once again that we are proud to be involved with such a caring and generous community.
