I would like to thank everyone who has already dropped off items for this drive. I would also like an updated list of anyone who would still like to help or will be dropping by tomorrow for cookies and Christmas movies, so let me know soon so that I will have a good count for the pizza..

 

 

 

 

 

Give and you shall receive,, when you drop off something for our needy family you will be entered to win a $25.00 Bass Pro gift card.

 

 

OK people, our group has adopted a family in need. This is a family of 4, the kids are a 7 year old and 9 month old girls. Dad had an illness last year and mom was out of work while she had the new baby. Mom is back to work but things are still tight. They are not getting assistance from the state and are a hard working family that is just having a bad year..  So I need your help to make this a great Christmas for this family. I need gifts for the kids, food or Fry's gift cards. You can drop off whatever you would like to bring to me or I can pick up anytime before Dec 23. We will be taking everything we can to this family on Christmas eve. If you would like to do cash we are going to pay an electric bill, That will help I'm sure.. So Please help and be a Santa to a great in need family.

This will be something this group will do every year so if you know a family next year let me know. I will be home after 2 pm so if you want to drop by on your way home from work I will be here..

 

I will have  sugar cookies and hot cider for anyone dropping by and for those who want to stay awhile we can order pizza or something and we will watch a few old Christmas movies so if you have one let me know and we will play it. I have National Lampoons Christmas vacation.

 

Thank you to all those who have stopped by and brought gifts or brought them to the party for this wonderful family. It has blown me away to see all of you do so much for a family you do not even know,, This is truly the best group of people on meet up and I am so very proud to call you all friends,,

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart..

 

Marsha

    When Marsha entered my life, I knew I met someone very special. When Marsha entered everyone else's lives from this Meetup... I was convinced of it!!! Thank you seems such a meaningless word to describe my gratitude for having you in my life Marsha. You bring our lives joy by creating joy for this family. Merry Christmas <3

    Anything you would like to share would be great, gift cards are good as well, the baby is still in diapers and formula, or from Fry's for Christmas dinner, I am grateful for anything that we can do for them..

    Thanks Kathleen, It just breaks my heart to know that this family may not have a Christmas. So as blessed as I am,, as we are, and as big as our group is,, if we all do a little something it will add up to a big something for this family. Is that not what Christmas is really all about?
