Children’s Christmas Fund tops $6,600

Christmas is right around the corner, and Santa is shining up his sleigh. Thanks to all of you, Christmas will be a lighter, brighter for some little ones out there. The box at Prairie EyeCare is filling up and the children at St. Anselm’s wanted their contributions for others. Thanks need to go out this week to Destry Miller - he celebrated his 11th birthday party by asking his guests to bring a child’s toy that was later donated to the Children’s Christmas Fund. Due to your generosity, the Children’s Christmas Fund now sits at $6,601, including a check for $647 from the Broken Bow Lions from their ‘Santa’ program.
