To The Daily Sun,
The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region was established in 1973 to provide charitable assistance to the Lakes Region children during the holiday season and throughout the year. This year we began our winter outerwear distribution in October. We have partnered with Salvation Army, St. Vincent Children's Foundation and local schools and police departments to assist families in the Lakes Region with their holiday needs. We were overwhelmed with requests for outerwear. We have been able to help more than 650 children this season. The need this year appeared to us to be much greater than in past years and with the cold weather on the way we were anxious to get this done. We rely on cash donations to purchase these items and do most of our shopping in the off season in order to get the best deals possible for our money.
We would like to thank the following people for their donations to help keep the children of the Lakes Region warm this winter:
Chamber Of Commerce Business After Hours, Barbara B. Harris, Dawn & Michael Phelps, Sarah Gray and Body Covers Screen Printing, Florence Guilmett, George and Susan Condodemetraky, William G.
