Dear editor, Halton Hills Community Support and Information would like to express its sincere thanks

to all those who helped make the holiday season special this past year for 108 families (243 children) in our community. During November and December members of the Halton Hills community generously donated many items to our Christmas Needs program, including toys, clothing, knitting, gift cards and money. Thanks so much to everyone who made a donation. There was a significant increase in the number of applicants this year and community members, including churches, businesses, groups and individual families responded to that need by sponsoring specific families. Sponsors were given a profile of the family (ages and sizes of the children) and then they purchased items of clothing specifically for that family. Thank you so very much to all the hamper sponsors-- we are

very grateful for your support of this program. We also appreciate the coverage outlining our need for sponsors that The Independent & Free Press and The New Tanner provided. The holiday season can be a stressful time for anyone who is in a difficult financial situation so we are pleased to be able to offer this program to the community and it is wonderful that we receive such generous support from the people of Halton Hills. We are fortunate to live in a community where people care for one another and demonstrate that caring attitude by sharing their resources with others. Cathy Gerrow, Community Support Co-ordinator, HHCSI
