To the Editor:
The Christmas of 2009 will probably be remembered by a lot of people in Wilson County, and today's children will surely tell their grandchildren about the hardships with the economy.
However, in Wilson County there are a lot of children who will not have to tell their grandchildren about Santa not coming to their house in 2009. In the Lebanon area more than 3,000 children and senior citizens enjoyed Christmas thanks to the generosity and volunteer work from our community.
Applications were down in 2009 at Wilson County Christmas of All and monetary donations as well. But, toy donations and sponsored children increased from 2008. This and money from our reserves allowed us to take care of every family and senior citizen who requested assistance. We finished the year with less reserves and toys to start Christmas 2010, but that will be addressed by the Board of Directors this spring. Wilson County Christmas for All is accepting donations for Christmas 2010. Donations can be mailed to P. O. Box 922, Lebanon, TN 37088.
On behalf of the Wilson County Christmas for All Board of Directors, our volunteers and the families and senior citizens served, Thank You.
Jim Harding, President,Wilson County Christmas for All, Inc.,Lebanon
