To the Editor:
We at the Maine Sea Coast Mission would like to extend a sincere thank you to all those who helped with the Christmas Program this year.
Without the help of numerous volunteers, donors and local businesses, we would not be able to have a successful program. This holiday, the mission provided gifts for 1,292 children and seniors in our area.
I would like to thank the other area Christmas programs who worked with us to make sure all needy families were served. Many of our neighbors took tags off the trees in Mardens, Reny’s and the Union River Book and Toy shop and purchased needed items.
Others knit hats, mittens and lap robes for children and seniors. Still others gave their time to wrap the gifts. Thanks again to everyone in the community who helped make this a good Christmas for so many of our neighbors.
