Community thank you
Food bank donations helped

To the Editor:
Is there anything more touching than the joy in a child’s eyes on Christmas morning? Thanks to our caring and generous community the Sky Valley Food Bank’s “Hope for the Holidays” program was able to provide nearly 600 children in need with a little Christmas wonder.
Thanks to the organization and guidance of volunteer Becky Grannan, the toy room elves sorted and filled shelves with age appropriate toys and games that were then distributed in the days before Christmas.
The family of Diane Wilton and all the good folks at Central Welding once again gathered cheer and filled stockings for a festive touch in Diane’s memory.
Overall, the Sky Valley Food Bank gave out holiday meals to about 400 families in our 3 days of distribution. All of these efforts were made possible by the many businesses, schools and individuals that held food or toy drives as well as all the generous community members who donated.
We feel blessed to live a community that cares. Thank you Monroe!
