Generosity aided many people in North Elba
To the editor:
A letter of thanks and some general information for those generous people who donated money and their time to North Elba Community Christmas Fund:
Due to the generosity of so many this year, we were able to provide food baskets for approximately 180 families. Also 135 children were given snowsuits, boots, hats, mittens, blankets, toys and sleds. Many senior citizens were given fruit baskets, fruit or poinsettias just to let them know that they have not been forgotten.
We would like to thank all who made it possible through donations of money, clothes, toys and food, along with those who delivered food baskets on Dec. 21. Things went very quickly and smoothly. We really appreciate all that everyone does to help; if not for you, all of this could not be possible.
Again, thank you,
Britt Pickard and Shannon Porter, co-chairpersons
Denice Fredericks, treasurer
