Making Christmas merry

With the Christmas season soon upon us, the THANKS Committee is once again asking for our community’s help. Because of your generosity over the years, many area families enjoyed a little more “Christmas” than would have otherwise been possible.

We understand many organizations ask for help this time of year, but there are still many families in the immediate area in need of help. All of the money we receive stays within the boundaries of Edwardsville Community School District #7. We know our community will step up as they have in the past and help us give those less fortunate a happier holiday season.

The THANKS Organization will purchase gift cards from a local grocery store for the families we serve. The gift cards allow the families to choose the food items that best suit their families’ needs. Any non-perishable food items donated to THANKS will be donated to the Glen-Ed Pantry. As always, we will continue to purchase gifts for the children and we will deliver the “Christmas” to the families shortly before the big day!

Monetary donations may be mailed directly to: THANKS, PMB 251, 17 Junction Drive, Glen Carbon, IL 62034 or to The Bank of Edwardsville, Remittance Department, 330 W. Vandalia, Edwardsville, IL 62025. Donations may also be dropped off at either Edwardsville Fire Station. All donations are tax deductible.

We would like to extend our best wishes for a peaceful and joyous holiday season.
