The Season of Giving

Since 1983 the generosity of our Presbyterian Village North residents has been evident in the annual giving to The Employees’ Christmas Fund. This year was no exception. Contributions of $101,451 for 2014 far exceeded our goal. This represents an 11.85 percent increase in giving over last year. On December 12 and 15, members of the Village Council Executive Committee distributed checks to employees in amounts based on their length of employment and hours worked, making their Christmas merry and bright.

Although residents can give to The Stewpot year round, many choose the Christmas season to remember this very worthy cause. And in keeping with a long-standing tradition, the ladies of the Women’s Kaffee Klatsch brought unwrapped toys that were given to our neighboring church, New Mount Zion, for their annual toy drive for children who otherwise would have had no visit from Santa.

Thank you to all our generous residents who brightened the Christmas season for many people through their giving spirit.
