Butler Clear Fork Adult Center helped 34 families at Christmas

The Holiday Happiness program operated out of the Butler Clear Fork Adult Center to help needy families at Christmas was able to provide 34 families (86 children) with presents, and food baskets at the Center on Friday, Dec. 21. We continue to have donations made of food items (many of which were collected this year by students at Butler Elementary), clothing and toys, and funds to shop for over 50 children. We had a couple of businesses, basketball teams, churches and individuals take families that provided for 36 more children. Turkeys and hams were again donated by local residents along with 35 – 10# bags of potatoes, and bags of carrots and oranges to complete the food baskets.

We appreciate all of the volunteers and donations that helped make this year a success.

We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the special efforts of one of the Clear Fork students (Miss Lauran Mellott) who held a Spaghetti Meal at North Bend Church to raise funds for Holiday Happiness. Butler Parents Club also raised funds that were used in purchasing gifts for the children.

Holiday Happiness has funds available during the school year to be used for children in need of coats, hats and other items necessary to attend school. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Ken Kinley or myself for additional information. Thank You!
