Thanks for supporting the SDN Holiday Fund Drive
The generosity of Summit County residents and visitors meant much for the organizations that received checks from the Summit Daily News’ Holiday Fund Drive.During December nearly $15,000 in contributions was received. All of the money is distributed to agencies whose focus is primarily families and children.”A simple thank-you is hardly adequate,” said Summit Daily News publisher Jim Morgan. “The generosity of those who contributed to the fund, especially those who contribute year after year, is indeed heartwarming.”Checks were mailed to the following organizations earlier this week:- Advocates for Victims of Assault- Bristlecone Health Services- Little Red School House- Salvation Army- The law enforcement Adopt an Angel program- Summit County Care Clinic- Summit County Family & Intercultural Resource Center- Summit County Early Childhood Connections- Timberline Adult Day Care”Timberline is once again very appreciative of the Summit Daily and those who contributed to the Holiday Fund,” said Candace Barnes, the director of Timberline Adult Day Care. “The donations benefit our programs and our people.”She was echoed by Christina Carlson, who oversees the FIRC.”We can’t say thank you enough,” she said. “People are so great.”The Holiday Fund was started in 2002 by former Summit Daily News Publisher Michael Bennett. In its short existence the fund has raised more than $56,000 for local agencies.Morgan cited the help of the Summit Foundation which served as the “bank” for the fund. “Their assistance was greatly appreciated,” he said.Among the individuals who contributed to the fund this year are Robert Boyd, Barbara Wolitzky, Anne Marie and Dayton Chapin, Robert and Linda Hess, Gary and Ruth Gallagher, Karen and Bill Pelham, Janet Coles and Robert Brown.Also, Elly and Bob Gordman, Bob and Fran Jones, Norman and Renee Stoller, David and Sonny Mercier, Jeffery Bergeron, Janice Green, Robert and Nancy Follett, Debra Edwards, John and Jackie Moberly, Paul and Martha Schnake, Carol Erickson, Richard and Carolyn Miller, Stuart and Lori Adams and Cheri Hathaway.Also, Jim and Rosanne Shaw, Stuhr & Associates, William and Patricia Mauk, Mr. and Mrs. I.M.
