Gift Club generosity: A heartwarming response

| Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, 7:34 p.m.

Year after year, our readers have showed their kindness and generosity by participating in our Holiday Gift Club.

And this year, once again, those participants helped to make the holiday special for many Fayette area youth.

The Christmas season is over, but the memories for all who benefited from the many toy and food drives in the Fay-West area will live on.

Daily Courier Gift Club members have warm, generous hearts, as evidenced by the amount of toys donated to the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program.

The lobby of the Daily Courier was filled with a variety of toys — beautiful new dolls, stuffed animals, bicycles, games and a ton of other items contributed by our Gift Club members.

Year after year, our readers prove how rich the Fay-West area really is in its generous, caring people.

We thank all who contributed toys to help scores of needy children enjoy a wonderful Christmas morning and to the U.S. Marine Corps and its volunteers for continuing this worthwhile program. Your efforts are appreciated, especially by the children and parents who would otherwise not have such a happy Christmas.

In these tough times it is good to know that good people will step up to the plate and help, as they always do each year during this drive. Now, let's keep that giving and loving spirit alive throughout the new year.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
