On behalf of myself and the Muscle Shoals Baptist Association, we would like to thank you for supporting the WMU Christmas Project for Needy Children. Four hundred and seventy-seven children registered and 454 children qualified and were sponsored for Christmas. Two hundred and fifty-four children were sponsored by donations and volunteers shopped for them. Two hundred and ten children were sponsored by individuals.
On Monday, December 18, 2017 at the Moulton Recreation Center, 198 parents picked up gifts for 398 children which 157 included bikes.
We would like to thank everyone for their part in this project whether you took applications, sorted toys and clothes, sponsored a child, donated money, toys, clothes or bike; shopped for the children; helped with distribution or anything else. Also, thanks to the Department of Human Resources and Moulton Recreation Center for the use of their facilities, The Moulton Advertiser for the publicity they provided, R.E. Trucking for the use of the trailer truck for hauling and storage, and Toys for Tots for their contribution.
Thank you again community for all your work and support, we would not be able to provide this service without all of you!
