[November 10, 2016]
- In 2015, a group of people in Lincoln and Logan County joined
together to fill a gap left behind by the dissolution of the Lincoln
Jaycee's and their Angel Tree project. In that first year, the group
called S.A.N.T.A. (Samaritans and Neighbors Taking Action) provided
Christmas gifts to approximately 80 children.
This year, the S.A.N.T.A. organization will once again be working
to provide Christmas gifts to children throughout Logan County who
are not included in any other giving program.
S.A.N.T.A. is accepting applications now for families who are in
need of a little help this year for Christmas gifts. There is an
application to fill out which can be done at 74K Photography. The
business is located at 710 Delavan Street in Lincoln and the hours
Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. To be eligible for

organization in Logan County.
