Community shows generosity

Operation Marysville Community Christmas would like to thank the community for their support during our All-City Food Drive on Nov. 4, 2006. With the support of Albertsons South, Albertsons North, Big K-Mart, Grocery Outlet, Safeway and Thriftway as well as help from the Kiwanis, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Lions Club, Marysville Soroptimist, NJROTC, M-PHS Leadership Club, Marysville Fire Department and many others we were able to collect 4,830 pounds of food and $1,438.53 in cash and meat certificates, as well as a few toys for Christmas.
This could not have been accomplished without the generosity of the community who gave those donations. They will be used to help feed the less fortunate during this holiday season, and the toys will be given to a child who might not otherwise receive one.
We will continue to collect contributions in the red barrels that will be in the stores and other businesses throughout this holiday season. Thank you for your support. Best of all wishes to you during this holiday season.

O.M.C.C. Coordinator
