Dear Editor: I want to thank everyone that worked so hard to make this a very successful Christmas and food program this year.

The volunteers that gave their time on Mondays taking applications, those that worked on a Saturday bagging up all the gifts for the children and the ones who helped carry out all the bags on pick up day.

None of this could have happened without Madison County’s EMS and the Sheriff's Office annual Toy Ride and those folks who came out and those who gave donations, including churches, schools, businesses, civic groups and the many, many individuals that made personal donations.

Thanks to a very giving, caring community of people, we assisted 266 children with gifts and 565 individuals with food, clothing or some type of assistance in December.

May God bless each of you.
