Consider donating or volunteering for the Waushara County Community Christmas Project

It is that time of year again, when the volunteers for the Waushara County Community Christmas Project begin their annual drive. This project provides food and gifts for needy families in Waushara County. Last year, the project put together 385 holiday food baskets filled with canned goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, and a turkey or chicken for Christmas dinner. In addition, over 700 gifts were distributed to the needy children.

With tougher times, the number this year is expected to be just as great; therefore, the project needs your help. If you can donate a non-perishable food item, a gift, or monetary donation, it would be much appreciated. They are also asking clubs, churches, businesses, and civic groups to help.

This year, if you would like to sign your family up, applications are available at Waushara Industries. You must sign up in person and bring proof of residency, such as a utility bill.

If you would like further information on how you can help, call Waushara Industries at 920-787-4696. Applications for assistance can be pictured up at Waushara Industries, located at 210 E. Chicago Road, Wautoma.
