The 49th edition of Silver Valley Civitan Project Santa continues to proceed with a long list of community families with needs already compiled by the nine-member list team. Fifty-eight families in need, including 93 children, received gifts in 2014 from Civitan Project Santa.

The visitation team will begin work this Sunday at 2 PM. Volunteers will begin wrapping large gift boxes at Project Santa Headquarters next week. Customers of Food Lion in Silver Valley may purchase and donate ‘Holiday Without Hunger’ pre-assembled food boxes.  

People may add to their Christmas spirit by donating new unwrapped toys to Project Santa at the home of Harold & Joyce Parrish, 12986 East Old Highway 64. Previously owned clothing and toys donated should be clean, in good repair and only lightly used.

Monetary contributions may be sent to the Silver Valley Civitan Club, Inc., c/o Sara Barker, Treasurer, 222 Monroe Drive, Thomasville NC 27360. Churches tend to be the main supporters of PSC along with a few individuals and businesses. No donation is too large nor too small.

Volunteers will gather at Santa Central on December 1 to begin wrapping gift boxes. All donations should be made by December 10 as sorting will begin that night. Shopping is scheduled for December 18.
