To the Editor of EDN:
Words do not and cannot express the appreciation felt by those working with the Upper Des Moines Opportunity Emmet County Outreach for the very generous contributions and donations the residents of Emmet County made throughout 2011.
We have been blessed by giving from individuals, churches, organizations and business.
The Emmet County Outreach gratefully accepts and appreciates your help, trust and faith in our efforts to serve those in need. Thank you.
The support of our Christmas programs and our food pantry was outstanding. All of our families were very thankful for the presents they received.
The children had a merrier Christmas because of your generosity. The toys, food, gift certificates and cash donations were used to help some very needy families in our county.
We do indeed live in a very caring and giving county. Thank you again for your generous donations and support this past year.
With your continued support we will give our families the encouragement that they need to empower them to self-sufficiency.
If you have any questions or concerns about outreach, please feel free to give us a call or visit us at the outreach office.
