Dear Editor: Ripley and District Christmas Hamper Program

On behalf of the Ripley and District Christmas Hamper Program we would like to say a huge thank you to the individuals and families who gave personal donations to our program, in lieu of family Christmas gifts. What a selfless thing to do for the less fortunate in our community.

A special thank you to all Service Clubs and Church groups in our area. Your generous donations helped us to supply gift cards to local vendors. To the Community Well Being Program thanks for your donation to kick start our program again this year. Local companies provided extremely generous donations from themselves and their employees.

Please know that your contributions would surely bring many smiles to the people who received them.

This year we packed 53 hampers and distributed them with help from our volunteer drivers. 26 families which include 63 children, and 31 individuals for a total of 143 people in our community were recipients of this generosity.

We could not have done this without your effort and support. As a result, you have brightened the Christmas season for many in our community.

And last but not least our committee who work countless hours planning, organizing, and purchasing, thanks so much for all your help.

From Marianne and Larry Irwin

On behalf of The Ripley and District Christmas Hamper Program Committee
