Christmas giveaway garners local support


The Neighborhood Outreach Program wishes to thank community members, organizations and individuals for their time, talents and/or support through the 2013 calendar year. It is with great pride and pleasure that we report 470 individuals were helped through the Christmas giveaway program.

Through your generosity, our program was able to supply families and children with food, clothing and toys. In addition, the monetary donations were used to purchase school supplies for Norwood-Norfolk Central School students. We will be able to continue to help those in need throughout 2014, due to your generosity.

Each year, we ask for the support of local community members, like yourself, and each year we are impressed and overjoyed with the response we received. It is your kindness, generosity and continued hard work that enable us to reach out and help so many this time of year.

We would also like to thank the many volunteers who gave of their time to help with toys, food and clothing. Also, the helping hands when needed to carry large, heavy boxes. Thank you also to those who donated the food, mittens, hats, afghans and toys.

Thank you Sylvia Despaw and the wonderful friends of the Norwood Golden Agers for the delicious luncheon served to the volunteers. We apologize if we have forgotten anyone.
