Thanks to many, Christmas Project helps
This month, some 600 children and 100 elderly shut-ins have received or will receive holiday packages or food, thanks to the efforts of the many people who make Brewton's Christmas Project work.
Coordinated through the Greater Brewton Area Chamber of Commerce, this project is made possible by the donations of cash and goods by many, many people. A bevy of volunteers work year-round to ensure that the less fortunate among us are remembered at Christmas. Those volunteers would include individuals who shop use contributed dollars to shop for children and the elderly, as well as the members of civicl organizations like Kiwanis and Sportsman Club who raise money to actually take children shopping. They are assisted by the local Wal-mart, which holds special, exclusive shopping hours for these events.
Kudos to all of those who give of their time, talents, and pocketbooks to make Christmas a little special for those who would otherwise have nothing. Brewton is known as a giving city, and at no time is it m ore evident than at Christmas.
