It’s that time of year when we open our hearts and help those who are less fortunate. We are “adopting” two families for the holidays. Please call Nancy Snyder (544-1361) or Tracy Stover (222-9661) if you have any questions.  Please make your drop-offs to Nancy Snyder at 2111 Bayberry (last house on the right by the marsh).
comments from Nancy:
Please note a couple of questions/issues:
       For Family B – there were several very specific items that I did not include on the list I am emailing only because I would hate for the gifts to be duplicated many times over.  I am happy to add these back to the list if you think I should – just let me know.Here are the items:                       

Child 1 – Hannah Montana twin sheet set

Child 2 – Male 6 – Bike (does anyone have a good used one we can fix up?)   

Child 3 – “Flag Football set” found at Wal-Mart                        

Child 4 – Female 23 months – Toddler Bed (she is currently sleeping with her 9 yr old sister)  Another good used item?    

Child 5 – Gym set that lights up                       
Parents – King Size bedspread (gift certificate for them might be better on this)
·        Last year I used so many cardboard boxes (mostly liquor boxes) and plastic sacks to transport the food and gifts – I thought it might be a good idea to make a general request for any type of re-usable plastic container, anything from garage sales, plastic tubs, laundry baskets, trash cans, new or used – anything to deliver the items in that could be used at their home.  I didn’t want everyone in the neighborhood showing up with plastic crates but each of you might mention it to anyone that asks.  And – if you have any…. I think that is it for now – let me know what else you need!! Thanks – Nancy

Please wrap presents and indicate the family and family member the gift is for, and the type of gift (toy, clothing, books, etc). We will be delivering the gifts in mid December so all food and gifts are needed by Friday December 12th. Thanks again for all your support!
