Card Of Thanks January 4, 2017

“Thank you to all who contributed to 2016’s Giving Tree Program. Twenty-one families in Maple Lake received assistance in making their Christmas a bit brighter. Thank you to the businesses who hosted a collection box for toys; Irish Blessing’s Coffeehouse, Star Bank, The Costume Shoppe, Maple Lake Floral and the Dollar General. Financial donations from the American Legion Club, Maple Lake Lions and Maple Lake Knights of Columbus, and from individuals were put toward the purchase of winter items; coats, boots, hats/mittens. Thank you for the generosity shown by those who purchased a specific item to be given as a gift and because of those who donated food items. This year, students from the Jane Goodall Environmental Sciences Academy made and donated baskets of household and cleaning products to our Giving Tree families. Those baskets made a nice addition to their Christmas gifts! To the volunteers who shared their time helping to organize, shop and distribute, you are what makes this all able to happen. Thank you all again. Happy New Year!
