More than 75 volunteers are helping make the Jamieson Community Center Christmas Store a success this year, which will serve nearly 400 children, shares Executive Director Nancy Mowen:
“We have a record number of children, 366 kids and a make-up day on Monday, where we are likely to serve 30 to 40 more, so we will be close to 400 by the time we are done; a wonderful Christmas for these kids. Jamieson Community Center buys the clothing and I do that at Kohl’s. The community donates, hats, gloves, blankets; we have more than 200 coats that were donated. We have toys and Midwest Bank does the Angel Tree.”
Additionally, Jamieson Community Center has partnered with Eagle View Community Health System for this year’s Christmas baskets, providing a Christmas dinner to families in Warren and Henderson Counties.
