The Board of Directors of Polk County Christian Social Ministries wants to shout out a big THANK YOU to the people of Polk County for once again making our annual Share Your Christmas Program a huge success.
We were able to give food and gifts to 371 families or a total of 1190 individuals.
The generosity of people, businesses, organizations, churches and schools is amazing. Each year over 100 volunteers give of their time the week before and during the distribution. We couldn’t do it without you.
We want to say a special thanks to John Hall, Pat Johnson and Susan Sparks for stepping up late in the planning to oversee set-up, distribution and manage the drive through.
Thanks to the schools who held food drives. Fair Play collected over 3,000 cans of food! Other schools included Humansville and Bolivar Intermediate. Bolivar Primary School collected coins again this year.
Each year a businessman purchases the apples and potatoes and this year we had a community member pay for all the flour and sugar. The Cattlemen’s Association once again provided packages of ground beef for each family. The Knights of Columbus had their trailer full of bicycles to be given to kids asking for a bike.
And thanks to the age-group chairmen who made sure that each individual received a full gift bag. We could go on and on with our thanks but it would take a large amount of space to list everyone.
This year through the efforts of Bolivar First Assembly we were blessed with a semi load of food from Convoy of Hope. Because of this we were able to give much more food than we would have been able to give. Officials from Convoy of Hope were present during distribution and were very impressed with the program. They have already promised to help again next year.
So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every donation, whether it be monetary, a gift from the angel trees, your time volunteering, or just remembering the program in your prayers is precious in His sight. May God richly bless you for what you have done and what you will do for Share Your Christmas and PCCSM in the future. God bless each and every one!
PCCSM Board of Directors
