The Toys for Angels Committee would like to thank all of the individuals, churches, organizations and businesses that were involved in the 2019 Christmas assistance programs. The community provided gifts of clothing, shoes, boots, toys and treats for 134 children. The Salvation Army's Bundle Up Program provided coats and outerwear to 40 seniors. In addition, 16 children were helped by the efforts of the Brookville and Clarion Sheetz employee Christmas Assistance Program. This truly was a community effort with 24 area churches, organizations, and businesses participating by providing gifts and treats.

In addition, we would like to thank Susan Boring for her generous heart in donating beautiful handmade quilts that were given to the children as well as other various missions. Susan asked friends and family for her milestone birthday to create quilts that would be donated to these missions.
