Christmas Bureau is accepting donations
Submitted by Patty Byers
The Nemaha County Christmas Bureau is asking for the community’s support of the 2017 Christmas Store.
Donations of new toys (especially for boys and girls ages 7-10), blankets, toiletry items (such as shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes), socks, stocking hats and gloves, practical kitchen item, and stocking stuffers are needed by Sunday, Dec. 3. Monetary donations also are welcome.
The annual Christmas Store provides practical gifts and food vouchers to income-eligible families in Nemaha County, plus a new toy for each child in those families. This year the Christmas Store will be held on Friday, Dec. 8, at the Seneca United Methodist Church.
All donations remain in Nemaha County and are tax-deductible. Donations can be dropped off at the Seneca United Methodist Church, 702 Main Street, or in Sabetha at the City Hall Dispatch Office before Dec. 3.
If you or your organization have questions concerning the Christmas Store, please contact Patty Byers at 785-336-3632.
