Letter To The Editor - Clothes & Food Basket

of LaGrange County


To the Editor:

With the 2012 Christmas Bureau completed, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all who helped make it a success.

Without the tremendous support of LaGrange County and surrounding communities – the individuals, churches, schools, businesses and social service organizations – our outreach would be seriously limited. We thank you so much for your generosity and help.

We served 511 families or 2,156 men, women and children with groceries, bedding, towels, underwear, socks, hats, gloves, and toys. Numerous toy drives were held on our behalf and we thank all who participated. The Toy Shop is such an important part of our Christmas Bureau and we appreciate every toy that is donated. Families look forward to being able to choose just the perfect toy for each of their children.

A huge thank you to our faithful and hard-working volunteers. They are the heart of this organization and we would cease to function without them. God bless you all.

We are open Mondays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Thank you for your wonderful support and generosity.
