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.
