I want to take a moment to send out a heartfelt Thanks to our community for a successful holiday season.
We successfully fulfilled Christmas for 96 families with a total of 192 children of Upshur County as well as processed 16 children with the Sheetz Christmas program. I want to thank those that had Angel trees in their businesses, adopted the Angels and the ones that stepped up to cover emergency families that came in at the last moment. This year we had all Angels adopted and successfully turned in. Thank you to the ones that volunteered their time helping with the transfer to our distribution location, organizing by family, sorting, marking out bar codes and checking/putting bikes together. We as a community are a team, we are blessed by you to be able to help others and I thank you!!
To the ones that braved the weather and committed their time volunteering during our bell ringing season, it too was a success. I give special thanks to our local VFW lead by Larry Brown, once again, for their scheduled commitment for the entire duration of our season. We had many clubs, families and individuals volunteer this year; The Buckhannon Rotary Club, Girl Scouts, Women’s groups and even had some High Schoolers getting their community service hours in thru ringing. We give you great Thanks in helping with the ringing season as it is our main resource for the services we provide to our community so I thank you!!
