Holiday helpers needed

Approximately 200 children will receive Christmas gifts this year through Adopt-A-Child and another 35 or so through Project Care.
Families can “adopt” or purchase various gifts for the children in need starting this week by calling Deb Donnell at 228-1444, Barbie Daugharthy at 365-5061 or Cheryl Sparks at 365-1789.
Through Adopt-A-Child, donors are given a list of a child’s needs, wants and clothing sizes. Gifts may be purchased and taken to First Baptist Church in Iola through Dec. 10.
Project Care, sponsored by the Iola Police Department, handles all of the shopping. Supporters can help out by donating money. For information about supporting Project Care, call Roberta Ellis at 365-4960.
