Thank you for Supporting the Winter Dinner, December 2010

Happy New Year! I must begin the New Year with my celebration of gratitude for those who supported our 5th Annual Winter Dinner Distribution. 459 families enrolled in our Early Head Start, Head Start and MIHOW programs received a gift certificate to a local grocery store in their community to supplement their pantries during the holiday break. Many parents have shared their expression of appreciation through cards, phone calls, and staff reports as well as during meetings. The purpose of this endeavor is to support a family meal while children are away from our tables. 

Thank you to our local community individuals donors: Don Koscevic, Mary Ann and Fred Simmons, Ronnie and Diana Kreitzer, Shirley and Charlie Milton, Tim and Marlene Midget, Emmett Rice Jr., Ruth Rice, Tom Miller, Peggy Miller, Paige Midget, Carol Gongola, Robert and Carol Mack, Rick and Cheche Price, Janice Barnett, Agnese and Michael Barnett, Keith Miller, Joseph and Betty Thomas, Cathy and Alfred Williams, Becky and Joe Erbacher, Pam and Daniel Dudley, Jan and Arthur Granda, Percy and Sharon Sinclair, Steve and Tina Martino, Jack and Cher McKeever, Joan Weiskircher, Alma and Larry Cunningham, Ardell Mayhugh, Betty and Dave Miller, and Bernie Glenn. Thank you to the following professionals, churches and local businesses donors: Riesbeck’s Food Market, Mr. Lou Serra-The Serra Foundation, Dr. Lisa Hill, Charlotte Umoja, Roanne Burech, Carol Smith, Hill International, Bailey, Riley, Buch and Harman, Wayman AME Church, Dr. Michael Pipo, Lee and June Paull III, Hancock County Savings Bank, Kevin McGilton, Betty McGillen, Bordas and Bordas, John Curtiss Design, Gold, Khourey and Turak, Karen Miller-Miller, Weiller and Walters, Wheeling Office Supply, Paul Padgett, Lisa Slie, Dr. Steve Bagnato, Irvin and Kathy Shapell, Lou W.
