In just a few days it will be Christmas. Throughout our area, many local residents will have a more joyful holiday in the knowledge that they have made it brighter for needy neighbors. Will you be among them?
We hope so. Hundreds of area families are struggling financially, through no fault of their own. Toys for the children, festive holiday meals, even warm coats are the stuff of their dreams.
Local organizations and special fund drives are working to make those dreams come true. Without our help, they will not be able to do so.
Time is short. Some holiday programs for the needy already have stopped accepting donations. Others still need help.
Please, help provide it, but act quickly.
It'll make your Christmas merrier. After all - 'tis the season.
