Thanks to 'Be a Santa to a Senior' donors

Published: January 22, 2014 12:00 AM

Because of the kindness and

generosity of the people of Portage County,

the 2013 "Be a Santa to a Senior" program was an overwhelming success.

I want to thank the volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the program; the Streetsboro Senior Center and Excalibur Auto Body in Streetsboro, as well as other locations throughout the count, which allowed us to put up donation trees and collected gifts. Thank you to The Gateway News and Record-Courier for the media coverage that helped create awareness of the program and to everyone who purchased, wrapped or helped deliver gifts.

This was truly a community effort that brought joy to the lives of more than 285 seniors in our county this holiday season.
