Help needed to fill Christmas baskets
It is once again time for the Family Resource Center’s Christmas basket and gift giveaway to families in need this holiday season. Sponsors have been found for most of the 80 families the center has adopted, but there is still work to be done.
Help is needed in obtaining the items for the gift baskets. Each of the baskets costs between $60 to $75 and is filled with many necessities for daily living such as toiletries, cleaning supplies, canned goods, small pots and pans, sugar and flour, pencils and notebooks, towels, bathroom tissue, cooking oil, oatmeal, crackers, rice, pancake mix, hair brushes and toothpaste and brushes. These baskets allow recipients to divert their income toward providing a Christmas celebration for themselves and their families. Assistance in any form would be greatly appreciated. Call the Family Resource Center at (530) 542-2740.
