Christmas Baskets




Christmas 2018


Dear Friends of Foothills Christmas Basket Project,

This year, due to your wonderful support and generosity, we were able to give out Christmas baskets to 1009 people in our community! We gave 184 baskets to families with children (a total of 517 children), and 64 baskets to 107 senior citizens and special-needs adults.  Each basket contained nonperishable food items, a bag of fruit and meat. We also gave out 400 gift cards for milk from Stewarts, and 185 "Give Hope" food boxes from Hannafords.  The children of the families received two gifts each, one of clothing and one toy. Many received winter clothing.  Most children received hats, mittens and socks. Packages of diapers were given to the especially young members of the families!
We can never thank you enough for all the fantastic help that you provide to these people of our immediate community every year. God Bless you and "Happy New Year"!
Thank you and sincerely,
Christmas Basket Project Committee of Foothills Rural Community




                                                     
 Did you know?
The Christmas Basket Committee has an account at
 Cushman's Bottle and Can Redemption Center on Rte. 365 in Floyd. 
When you bring in cans and bottles you can tell them to apply the redemption to the 
Foothills Christmas Basket account. 
The money earned will help to buy food for the baskets. 
Thank you.
 This account will be active throughout the year
