Dear Editor:

On behalf of Jackson County Christmas Charities Board, we want to thank you for your generosity, Jackson County.

Because of your kindness, all 650 applicable children had a Christmas like all children deserve. Furthermore, every elderly and disabled adult was adopted as well.

Additionally, due to monetary donations, we were able to offer food assistance to all 429 elderly and disabled applicants with a $75 food gift card for the first time ever. Unlike qualified children, elderly receive very little food stamps, and therefore are often in need of food.

It isn’t always feasible to adopt a family during Christmas time, but if you would like to participate in other ways, we accept monetary contributions throughout the year. Please mail to P.O. Box 1232, Scottsboro, AL 35768.

Whether you aided one of over 1,000 individuals separately or through one of our increasingly involved churches, civic organizations or local businesses, thank you again for you commitment to our community

—Robbie Copenhaver

President, Christmas Charities Board
