Area residents once again have an opportunity to help make Christmas a reality for the residents of Good Samaritan Boys Ranch. 

For the 11th year, the Bolivar Herald-Free Press has partnered with GSBR to sponsor Christmas for boys at the ranch. 

Each ranch resident compiles a Christmas wish list of gifts they hope to receive, detailing wants from stereos to fishing poles and lava lamps to Denver Broncos jerseys. 

Call the BH-FP at 326-7636 with the name and number of the child to sponsor. Please call before purchasing a gift to ensure there are no duplicates. 

After the gifts are purchased, they can be dropped off — unwrapped — at the BH-FP office at 335 S. Springfield Ave. by Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Everyone who makes a donation will be recognized in the BH-FP.

Boys waiting to receive gifts are listed below, along with their clothing sizes, shoe sizes and wish lists. For more information on boys’ interests or hobbies, or to sponsor a child, call the BH-FP at 326-7636. This is is current as of Tuesday, Dec. 3.
