I would like to give a special thank you to Jim Sterner for providing the music on Saturday for the drive-thru. Jim contacted me and volunteered to play Christmas music for the 2 hour drive thru. He is a new member and his music put all of us in the Christmas spirit!
I would like to give some special thanks to our Christmas Family Chairperson, Karen Young, and her team of Jean Brandt and Rich Young for helping shop for clothes and toys for our seven kids. It was quite a lot of work to find the items the children requested. Karen & Jean also wrapped all the gifts. It took hours to complete the wrapping not to mention the shopping. The ODSC is going to provide these kids with a wonderful Christmas.
On Sunday, the following volunteers helped sort and box up all the food to be given to the families of the kids: Joe and Beth Cornwall, Wayne Baldwin, Rick Kosko, Sue Wehner, Lori and John Setzer, Donna and Bernie Williams, Rich & Karen Young, and Monica Powell.
Monday, we delivered the food and gifts to the school where the parents will pick them up. Karen & Rich Young, Wayne Baldwin, Lori and John Setzer, Donna and Bernie Williams and I also delivered the surplus food to North Strand Helping Hands to help other families in need. Again, thanks to all of you.
Below is a picture of the quantity of food and Christmas gifts for our families. It was awesome! Thank you so much.
Merry Christmas to our wonderful shag family,
Hello ODSC Members,
We just finished our Christmas Drive Thru and I want to take a moment to thank all our volunteers. Terry McCoy and Paulette Miller and their team worked on the the food for us and it was delicious! We have a great group of volunteers who directed traffic, handled re-up applications and collected your donations for our Christmas Families. Thank you to all the volunteers!
Now, I want to thank the 204 of your who drove thru our event today and donated a van full of food for our Christmas families. You also donated $673 and $200 of Honey Baked Ham gift cards which we will use tomorrow to purchase turkeys, hams, and perishable food for the families.
You generosity to our Christmas families is wonderful!
Thank you for allowing me to be your President in 2020 and I wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope the next year allows us to dance and socialize together.
