Local community helps in giving to soldiers

Dear Editor:

Lincoln Woman's Club would like to thank the community for their help with "Operation Santa," our project to send "sox" to our troops for Christmas 2011.

During District 17 Spring Convention in April, the following totals were reported:

  • 5,727 Christmas socks

  • 1,822 pairs of athletic socks

  • 1,551 Christmas cards

  • 200 Beanie babies

With the help of members and community, Lincoln Woman's Club was able to contribute:

  • 151 Christmas socks (made by members)

  • 500 Christmas cards with handwritten messages

  • 72 neck coolers made by members

  • 157 Beanie babies (a new item this year)

  • 3 boxes of hygiene items

  • 2 boxes of snack items

  • 1 box of candy and gum

Special thanks to Dr. Morales' Dental, Zion Lutheran Girl Scout troop, New Holland 4-H club.

These items along with money for postage were delivered to McLean County Farm Bureau, where "sox" were filled and taken to Peoria and mailed in October.

Once again, community generosity and concern enabled us to help send a bit of Christmas cheer to our troops far from home. We are working on this project for 2012 and will be asking for your help again this September.

Lincoln Woman's Club
Mary Cooper, veterans chairman
Sue Beaver, president
