Wesley Christmas: East Plains people contributed 31 gift cards ($25 each), plus other donations by cheque amounting to a total of $2100. (An unknown amount was contributed also by those who chose to donate directly to Wesley.) Also, 3 large bags of toys, knitted goods, etc. (collected at the Panabaker’s house) were sent from East Plains to Wesley. Wesley delivered 2,763 hampers of groceries and gifts to needy homes. After the post-Christmas clean up many bags remained, which will be contributed through the YWCA and the Women’s shelter.
Our thanks to Gail L. for her hands-on participation, on several days, in the preparation of the hampers.
