Hello All, YES!! I know its only August.... BUT, we are gearing up for our "Refurbished For A Purpose
Christmas". I know that many of you may have summer yard sales or clean out closets for new
school clothes, this year we have been generously donated the use of a storage facility and will
have room to start much earlier this year. With that being said anything you have that you
would like to donate to our cause please let Deb and I know. For those of you new to this I'll
explain what the program is. Here in Eastern, KY we are struggling with a bad economy and the
loss of coal related jobs. Our Program provides Christmas gifts/food for at risk families. I
(Tonya) work in the school system and know first hand kids at risk. Some only ask for a pillow
and a blanket or towels and washcloths. We accept gently used toys and clothing for kids and
adults as well. We also provide the families with food for Christmas Dinner and supplemental
food for the families thru the long winter break. Most kids we serve eat their best meals at
school. Last year your donations helped us to provide assistance to 55 kids. You have no idea
what this meant to our community. So we are gearing up for an even better 2016, with an
earlier start. Any yard sale/closet clean items you may need to get rid of, we will make use of.
Thanks again for all your help, we are blessed to have you.
