A legacy of good deeds
Last summer, when I needed help fixing my lawn mower, I called Jerry.
A couple of months ago, when Pam’s old dishwasher crashed and we needed a new one installed, we called Jerry.
Close to Nowhere
I’ve got SAD really bad...
• According to Wikipedia:
“Symptoms of SAD may consist of difficulty waking up in the morning, nausea, tendency to oversleep and overeat, especially a craving for carbohydrates, which leads to weight gain. Other symptoms include a lack of energy, difficulty concentrating on or completing tasks, withdrawal from friends, family, and social activities. All of this leads to depression, pessimistic feelings of hopelessness, and lack of pleasure which characterize a person suffering from this disorder.”
Letter to the Editor
I’m writing to thank Holly Springs residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas.
Through their efforts, we were able to contribute towards 16,653 shoeboxes collected within the Northwest Mississippi area - filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items – for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind.
These simple, gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.
Although drop-off locations in Holly Springs are closed until November 2014, shoebox gifts can be packed any time. Gifts are received year-round at Samaritan’s Purse (801 Bamboo Road, Boone, N.C., 28607) or using the project’s online tool, where donors can virtually build a box. To get involved, visit samaritanspurse.org or call (770) 777-9342.
Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project.
A simple gift, packed with love, can communicate hope and transform the lives of children worldwide.
