How do we begin saying THANK YOU to all that have donated from cash to presents, we are simply amazed at where the help comes from. We have families that have been helped in the past and now are in a position to help others. Goes to prove what goes around comes around again this year.
As in the past years a special Thank You to Maine Street Realty for allowing their office to be the drop off for so many wonderful gifts and money. To the American Legion in Locke's Mills, Rooster's Roadhouse, the ATV club, Sunday River skiers and the Motorcycle club for their fundraisers. The generosity of so many others is such a long list it is hard to address each and every one of them but know that without all the help we would not be able to give all that we do. Even strangers ask what we are doing and give donations.
Christmas for Families has operated in the Bethel area for 33 years. We had taken care of needs through Portland Press Herald for a few years before coming to Bethel. The generosity of the community has allowed the program to grow each year. It is truly overwhelming to see the generosity of the community in supporting Christmas for Families. Each year the need seems to grow and it is wonderful to be able to help provide a Christmas for all of the families that otherwise would have had little or nothing.
This year we have helped 85 families, 230 children plus their parents.
Have a Happy New Year and we wish you all the best.
Christmas for Families Director
