My 23 year old son is a Bell Ringer for Salvation Army, the other day someone gave him a box full of food and wished him a Merry Christmas. He was surprised and a little afraid because as a Bell Ringer you're not suppose to accept any personal gifts. He called me and asked if I could come and pick the box up, which I did. Later we found out that it was ok to accept the gift, which I was glad to hear because we didn't have any food at home.
I wanted to take this day to say thank you to the group that gave us this food. Sometimes when our family feel like we're less fortunate then others God always has a way of blessing us and believe me when I tell you that this was a blessing.
I pray that God will continue to bless the group that gave this gift.
Thank you so much for your generosity this holiday season. It was just wonderful of you to think about the less fortunate. The food baskets were so nice and very much needed. I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
God bless you and your family and friends.

I just wanted to thank you again for your generous donation! I'm going to deliver the food today (to Crown Point).
Thank you once again we really appreciate everyone for putting these together we will enjoy ours. Happy Holidays !!!!!
My sons & I would like to thank you and your friends for being ever so gracious on the donation of the Christmas Dinner. This year, and especially now, has been so bleak for my family. Through your friends and yourself, you have brought a glimmer of hope for a wonderful Christmas day. We will be praying for all of you on that special day as we sit down and eat the dinner you gave us. Please pass on a big thank you again for your generosity, and may you all have a blessed and wonderful holiday.

Thanks So Much For The Christmas Basket It Was Such a Blessing Thanks so So much God Bless you Your Family and Friends
I am one of the people you and your friends graciouly delievered a beautiful Christmas Dinner. I will admit I have had a terrible case of the Holiday Blues for some time and each of my family were feeling the stress of it all. So many things have happened this year..too many disappointments...problems..heartaches..it was almost too much. Your gift made such a difference...the fruit, the special homemade candies, the turkey and all the rest..made us stop and count our blessings. We are better off than some...We have each other… We have a roof over our heads, heat to keep us warm and food on the table...plus the love and kindness of our neighbors to remind us of what is important...the love of human kindness. Please tell all your helpers we thank them from the bottom of our hearts for reminding us what Christmas is all about. As Tiny Tim said..."God Bless us one and all" I will keep you all in my prayers.
Thank you so much, Manda! We were pleased to receive your food items.
Have a wonderful holiday,

Thank you sooo much...it truly made our holiday and it was even more touching that my granddaughter asked of your husband when he left..grandma does santa know who the helpers are to bring us special things? it really made me smile and know in my heart there are those who truly care about others...God Bless and have a Merry Christmas
I dont know who is responsible for blessing people with the Christmas dinners-- but please tell them thank you from the bottom of my heart..… I had no money for groceries this week- as my boss's "bonus" didn't happen- I was blessed beyond measure.......thank you again!!!!
Dear Mandy and to all of her elves,

Thank you, your family, and friends for helping me to provide a special dinner for my family at Christmas.
My step-daughter had signed my granddaughter up for the Angel Tree Program. We were wrapping the gifts when your friend arrived. I had a tree given to me yesterday. Tessa was so excited. This year has been hard on her. Her mom is disabled so we try to help. This year we were down as well.
God always provides for our needs. Know that what you have done means alot to us.
We are so grateful for your generosity this year we will definetly enjoy the dinner being provided. We hope you and your family & friends have a blessed holiday.
I want to thank you and all who helped and wish you all a very Merry Christmas… thank you

Hi I just wanted to say to you that you are a true angel, There are so many people that need help and so many people that will not even look their way. And I read something like your offer and it just warms my heart. I wish there were more people like you in this world. God bless you and your friends and family and I wish you and yours a very Happy holiday
I just wanted to say thank you for doing this. You all must be great people and I'm sure are very appreciated by the recipients!
I want to thank for ahead of time for the families that you will be helping. My family has hit on hard times as gifts for Christmas are scarce, but we are still able to get the fixings for our Christmas dinner; I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how blessed you are and to thank you as my Christmas spirit has been depleted and you just reaffirmed for me that people like you and your family do still exist. I wish I was in a position to help you myself.
God bless you and yours this Christmas Season.
Cindy & Family
