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.
