Letter: Hartland Christmas Project
To the Editor:
For the 31st year, the Hartland Christmas Project, with the cooperation of the churches and schools in Hartland, is spearheading a collection of food, good winter clothing, boots, gifts and toys for families in Hartland who could use a little boost at Christmas.
We contact families ahead and ask what special clothes or gift each member, especially the children, might want — a “wish list.” Then we try to supply those specifics for their box — plus fill it with food, winter jackets, boots and Christmas goodies to brighten their holidays. We also give a fruit and cheese basket to our citizens who are 80 and over, and to families who have had a severe illness or loss in the past year. Because of the generosity of people like you, we are also able to continue throughout the year to distribute food and clothing and to assist with heating bills, medical bills, gas money to get to work and help in emergency situations of all other kinds. Due to the extreme economic crisis this year, your help is needed more than ever.
We thought you might like to share in this wonderful project. Donated items may be dropped off at the Brick Church at 10 Station Road in Hartland during the week of Dec. 12. Checks should be made out to the “Hartland Christmas Project” and mailed to Hartland Christmas Project, P.O. Box 368, Hartland, Vt., 05048.
If you know of anyone who might be in need of help, please call me at 436-2792.
Thank you so much for anything you can contribute; it will all go to help your neighbors right here in Hartland, a caring community.
