Christmas Coalition "Gifts from the Heart"
The Richland County Community Christmas Coalition is pleased to announce that the annual “Gifts from the Heart” gift distribution for the needy is scheduled for December 12, 2015. The event will once again be held at the Masonic Temple (on Main, across from the Courthouse) in Sidney. The hours for the distribution will be from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. and recipients will be allowed to choose gifts for a child that resides full time in their home and is under the age of 18. Recipients must be residents of Richland County.
The Christmas Coalition also assists the Richland County Food Bank and the Fairview Food Bank in distributing food boxes. The goal is to provide every family with all the ingredients to make Christmas Dinner!
Now is the time to begin keeping an eye out for gifts for donation. Many good buys can be found and Christmas will be here before we know it. Toy donations can be dropped off at any Richland County Edward Jones offices. Hats & mittens can be donated at any Richland County financial institution. And monetary donations can be taken to Stockman Bank or by contacting Jakkie Waller for pick up.
If you or your group would like to assist in setting up, food sorting or be shopper assistants, please call Jakkie at 480-9117.
Please remember, we ask that children DO NOT accompany the parent or guardian during the shopping experience.
