Welcome

Santa needs shoppers!  Each year, a group of folks ensure that needy local children have something special under their Christmas tree. This year, more than 200 children need our support. Christmas Friends is looking for volunteer shoppers, gift-wrappers, and financial donations. Please contact Charlotte Shutts at 325-3637 to offer your support.
