Happy Holidays!

Please bring with you a new unwrapped gift for a girl or boy, age infant to 16 years. Some ideas: toys, dolls, games, books, coloring books and crayons, playing cards, clothing, coats, hats, scarves and mittens, gift cards, CD's, CD players, boom boxes... don't forget the batteries!

Lenette Azzi-Lessing, the Executive Director of the Childrenís Friend and Service, will be joining us that afternoon and will share a few words about the organization and the people it serves.

Please let Sharon Kenyon know if you will be joining us calling 874-2433 by December 9th. Thank you.
