(Nov. 25) LaBelle
Portrait Studio and Gallery is gathering needed monetary donations and toys for
local organizations during the Holiday Season!
(Nov. 24) The Whitewater
Community Food Pantry is extremely grateful for the matching funds from the
Stuff-the-Bus Food Drive provided by the Kachel Foundation with the support of
First Citizens' State Bank, Ketterhagen Motors, Nelson Bus Company, Toppers
Pizza, Daniels Sentry Foods, McCulloughs Pharmacy and Gifts, Frawley Oil,
Egnoski Excavating, WSLD 104.5, Babcock Event Management, Supreme Structures,
Mulderink Farms, S & H Truck Service and the WHS FFA Club under the
supervision of Paul Majors!
They especially appreciate the donations
of turkeys and the funds to buy them at this time of the year! Thank you!
The Food Pantry continues to accept any warm
clothing, especially winter jackets, snow pants, caps, scarves, gloves and
mittens. Also they accept clean baby items or household items that are still
useful and more children's books before Christmas.
If you are a person
who travels, bring home the extra shampoos, soaps, toothpastes and lotions from
the hotel rooms, as their supply is almost depleted.
If you are an
individual who receives small gift items in the mail, such as greeting cards,
calendars, light blankets, pens and pencils, flags, reusable tote bags,
Christmas cards or ornaments, and you do not wish to keep them, the Food Pantry
can find good homes for them! They also are willing to take extra Christmas
ornaments or winter decorations that are new or have been gently used. There is
always someone who can use them.
Forty-two families or 20% of those families who signed up
for all of the fixings for their Thanksgiving dinners did not show up to pick
them up! Imagine our disappointment after going to 3 cities to get enough
chickens and turkeys! They will NOT be given to them next week; they will be
saved for Christmas dinners now! You are asked not to sign up if you, or a
friend of yours, cannot pick it up! (Susan Hiscox)
