20181217 Christmas Families
This year, the OD Shag Club sponsored 8 kids from four families for Christmas. The club donated $850 and the dance team added another $505 to make this a wonderful Christmas for these families. The Fifth Avenue group again donated a boy’s bicycle and accessories for one of our needy kids. Cindy Day, Cassie Shumway and Karen Young did all the shopping and were able to get almost everything on the kid’s wish lists. Each child got at least two new outfits and toys from their wish lists. Cindy, Cassy and Karen wrapped all the gifts.
The food that was donated at the Christmas Party was sorted Sunday morning at Rich and Karen’s home. 13 members showed up to help divide up the food for the four families. The money donated was used to buy turkeys, hams and other perishables for each family.
Monday morning, Terry McCoy, Glenn Strange and Rich and Karen Young delivered the food and gifts to Riverside Elementary School. Thanks to all who donated either food or money to help make this a special Christmas for these families.
Don and Judy Thomas also donated a girl’s bike which will be given to another child from the school that needs one.
