Gifts and volunteers needed for Santa’s Workshop

Posted by wlpo on November 24, 2013

Christmas shopping for children gives you an excuse to play in the toy aisle.  And even if your children are grown, you can still play in the toy aisle while buying a gift for a low-income child.

Project Success in Spring Valley is taking new toys, coats and cash for Santa’s Workshop- a Christmas giveaway for needy families in eastern Bureau County.

Michelle Zeko is the superintendent of Ladd Grade School and a volunteer with Santa’s Workshop.  She says they want every child to to receive something for Christmas.

If you’re the parent or guardian of a family that qualifies, you can register your family at the Project Success office in Spring Valley by December 6.  You’ll receive a ticket to redeem at Ladd Grade School on December 14.  It’s open to families in the area served by the Hall Township Food Pantry.

If you’re not in need you can get involved by making a donation or volunteering at the workshop.

Donations can be left at Ladd School, the Spring Valley Boat Club, and several banks in eastern Bureau County.

An interview with Zeko is available at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
