Elf Parade provided help for seniors
To the Editor:
Last Saturday, a group of merry elves paraded down the sidewalks of Main Street in Waynesville to pick up donations of blankets, hats and gloves to be distributed to elderly residents of Haywood County.
Carrie Keith, owner of Twigs and Leaves Gallery, assembled a group of 23 different merchants who willingly agreed to be drop off points for the donations.
Mary Margaret Johnson and Julie Mulhern spearheaded the effort for the auxiliary board of Mountain Projects. These ladies assembled over 60 boxes from the donations.
Members of the Tuscola High School Honor Society wrapped the large boxes, which were dropped off at the Mountain Projects Senior Resource Center to be delivered as Christmas presents to elderly residents in need of a little Christmas cheer.
Many thanks to the participating merchants, members of the auxiliary of Mountain Projects, the Honor Society of Tuscola, the Senior Resource Center of Mountain Projects and of course, the merry elves for making Christmas a little brighter for our seniors!
