Operation Santa a success

To the News Enterprise:

“Operation Santa” has been a successful program for more than 33 years, raising more than $54,900. This money has bought clothing for over 900 local children and provided over 380 holiday food baskets to their families. This year “Operation Santa” has raised $4,270 to help the many needy families in our town. I would like to thank everyone who helped support this year’s fundraiser. Many thanks go out to our community members, our parents, the JCS Teachers’ Association, Non-Teachers’ Association, Parent Teacher Student Association, Administration, and Students. A special thank you is given to all the local businesses and organizations for their donations, gift certificates, or prizes as well as the people who donated their time and efforts to help with fundraising or shopping, which resulted in making our fundraiser such a success. A huge “Thank You” is sent to everyone who donated to and/or supported the bake sale, which raised $260; our raffle, which raised $780; and the indoor garage sale organized by Melissa Smith, which raised $450.
