Local families in need have been receiving gifts from Durham residents for over 30 years through the Share Your Christmas program sponsored by the Durham County Department of Social Services, The Volunteer Center of Durham, and The Durham Herald-Sun Newspaper. The WWC purchases, wraps, and delivers gifts for 10 elderly women.
A great big thank you to all who participated in this charitable event. We were able to provide six or more gifts to ten women in the Durham area who are low income and senior citizens. Many of these ladies don't have family in the area, so it will be a nice treat for them to have so many presents to open this holiday season.
Thanks to the ladies who looked for all the bargains and did the shopping.
Thanks to the ladies who did the wrapping. (We thought we only had two for this but on the day of the wrapping party, we had 12 members and one granddaughter show up to help get the job done.)
Thanks to Peggy F for the use of her home to wrap gifts.
And a special huge THANK YOU to Carolyn D for organizing and heading up this event every year. She does a magnificent job and we thank her for all her time, effort, and hard work.
