Bring Christmas to the boys ranch


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

For the 13th 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. 15.

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.
