Rescue squad fills baskets to fill stomachs and a need

"I thought it was very good," Salverson said of the basket. "It actually came in handy but I also liked the personal touch with the homemade cakes. It was the first time I ever had a raspberry cake and it was pretty good."

Salverson also said he knows his is not the only family to appreciate the help from the rescue squad.

"I think a lot of people appreciated it, especially with the cost of fuel and heating oil and everything else this time of year," he said. "It's a good gesture."

Beverly Macey, also of Morrisonville, agreed.

"I think it's amazing that they help people that are in need," said Macey, whose family also received a basket. "It was great.

Everything you need to make a dinner was in there. It helped out a lot."

And, because of a seemingly ever-growing need in the community, helping people through Christmas dinner baskets is something Stevens hopes to do for years to come.

"I'd like to keep doing it as long as I can, as long as I'm able," she said. "Hopefully, next year, we can do 10 more and maybe hit 40."
