Re: “500 families getting Christmas baskets this year:”
We all know these past few years have been tough, especially around Christmas time.
Around Auburn, there are 500 families in need of a “Christmas miracle.” This miracle comes in a basket full of cheer. Inside this little basket there are things that everyone needs, things such as bread, fruit, toys and more items that will bring a smile to a face in need of a little cheer this holiday season.
The Auburn Area Christmas Basket Program has been serving families in need for 27 years now, and it has made a huge impact in our little community.
This is a wonderful program for families that are struggling at this time of year and just struggling overall.
I assisted with this program for many years, with the Ophir 4-H group. I gave back to senior citizens who were in 4-H for many years.
Every time I delivered one of these baskets, the smile and joy on their faces puts a smile in your heart. This program is excellent and should continue for many years forward, to further benefit the needy citizens of Auburn.
