A special thank you goes to Hilger’s Dry Cleaners for cleaning the hundreds of coats free of charge; to Southern Indiana Resource Solutions for the use of their facility to distribute all the gifts; and to the Perry County News for helping publicize the program.
Whether you adopted an “angel,” donated a coat or blanket or toys, donated money to one of the partner programs or volunteered with a program, you made the 2012 holiday season shine for struggling families in our county.
It takes many, many volunteers and donations to make a program like this successful and we are so appreciative of each and every one. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
