129 volunteers contributed their time and efforts in November and December to purchase, sort, display, arrange, and distribute merchandise

What do these statistics mean to me? They tell me that:
God is good! This year, as in every year since 2006, I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the many blessings that God has showered on this program.
This is a COMMUNITY Program! Each year, we are able to serve individuals and families in need due to the compassion, generosity, energy, efforts, and selflessness of:
Our Board, Committee Members, and Department Heads
Our year-round and seasonal volunteers –more than 150 people!
The patrons who come to our sidewalk sales, spaghetti dinners, art auction, craft booths and other fundraising events
The wonderful donors who contribute merchandise and/or funds
Those who help spread the word about our events and activities
Of course, Mr. Earl Childers, who makes year-round donations to take care of operational expenses
The support of our community helps us serve the needy of our community.
How awesome is that???!!!
Thanks so much for the donors, volunteers, advocates and prayer warriors who support us!
With best regards,
Karen Hughes, Board President
