A HUGE thank you for all the generous contributions we received this weekend during the "Fill the Boot" drive benefitting Hood County Christmas for Children. This money is used to purchase Christmas gifts for underprivileged children in Hood County. Due to the generosity of people in this county, $9,538 was raised on Saturday and Sunday. Thank you also to Walmart and Kroger for allowing us to fundraise at their place of business. There will be many children who will have a Christmas this year because of these donations.
