Christmas Friends Exceeds Goal

Christ­mas in 2015 will be a bit brighter for some of the less for­tu­nate in Mid­dle­sex County, thanks to the gen­eros­ity of oth­ers.

Christ­mas Friends Inc. reports that they have received a total of $30,645 in dona­tions this year. That’s good news, espe­cially when you con­sider that their goal this year was $26,000.

All funds donated to Christ­mas Friends go directly to help needy chil­dren and low-income dis­abled adults and elderly in Mid­dle­sex County, with not a sin­gle penny being paid toward any­thing else. That’s because all the work­ers are vol­un­teers, and there are no admin­is­tra­tive fees.

This past year, almost $26,000 was spent on about 300 needy peo­ple, mostly chil­dren.

If you would like to make a dona­tion, which is tax deductable, you can mail a check to Christ­mas Friends Inc., P.O. Box 549, Urbanna, VA 23175.

Dona­tions are accepted year-round. Con­trib­u­tors can remain anony­mous, and memo­r­ial con­tri­bu­tions can also be made. Call 758‑2328 for more information.
