CHEER Needs to Fill Santa's Sleigh
Meals on Wheels Sussex County, DE at CHEER is kicking off its Senior Sleigh Campaign for the Christmas holiday. CHEER is asking the Sussex County community to help fill the sleigh so that each senior receiving a meal on Christmas day can have a gift along with their meal. Gifts will be accepted until December 20 at the Warren and Charles C. Allen, Jr. CHEER Community Center located at 20520 Sand Hill Road (off Route 9), east of Georgetown. Just drop off a wrapped gift with a tag indicating whether for a senior male or female, or either, in the beautiful sleigh constructed by Bob Coffman and donated by Walt Koopman.
Board members and administrators of CHEER, Inc. proudly dedicate the sleigh following their December Board meeting. Those present were: Board members Nancy Choma, Marlene Brown, Rev. Grace Ruth Batten (president), and Pat Rust; Executive Director Ken Bock, Board members Janet Short, Bud Clark, Walt Koopman and Nick Varrato, Chief Administrative Officer Joyce Westen, Board member Bill Lauderbaugh, and Chief Operations Officer Beckett Harman.
