Here is where we stand as of 8 p.m. today (Tuesday) in our annual project to make Christmas for one local family a happy one.
We’re off to a solid start for our annual “Adopt-a-Family” holiday effort in partnership with Circles of Mercy. However, we’re on a short turnaround time and still need help to meet the December 16 drop-off deadline.
The chart above — which we are updating on a daily basis — shows the Hazzard family’s wish list, with items marked in yellow denoting what has been pledged so far. Please note that we’d like to first get all the “Need to have” items accounted for before we begin duplicating anything like clothes, etc.
If you’d like to help make the family’s Christmas morning brighter than it otherwise would be, just email project coordinator Debbie Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org (copy to Bill Dowd, please, at BillDowd4Troy@gmail.com) as soon as you can. She will gather all the donated gifts for delivery.
PLEASE REMEMBER, all gifts must be gift-wrapped and labeled with the recipient’s name.
Thank you for your generosity
P.S. If you’d like to contribute in another way, Circles of Mercy also is in need of personal hygiene kits to distribute to some of its clients. Here is what goes into such kits:
