TOYS FOR PAL-MAC TOTS A SUCCESS
Amber Jenkins, Post Manager, reported at the January 5th Corporation Meeting that the Wine and Cheese Tasting Party she organized to raise money for the Post’s “Toys for Pal-Mac Tots” program raised over $1,800.00. Because of her efforts and those of all her “elves”, the program was able to provide 119 kids in the Pal-Mac District with a little “Merrier” Christmas. She was the first to give the thanks to the community and individual sponsors who came forward to support this annual event. Also, thanks to those who attended the event to sample the wines and cheeses. It would be impossible to personally thank those whose donations of toys as well as funding, went into supporting all the kids. Amber had made two presentations to the Pal-Mac Board of Education to gain their support for this event.
Another positive example of how the James R. Hickey Post #120 (aka Palmyra American Legion) is actively involved in supporting the children and youth of the Pal-Mac School District area.
