Wilmington Yearly Meeting made a project out of sending Christmas cards. christmas party-17 christmas party-16 christmas party-15They had asked for our class list, so each student received cards with his or her name on them. Very cool. We heard a couple of students commenting that they didn’t believe that the cards were actually sent from the states so Ms Darcel showed them the US mail priority box. Argument settled.  Thank you Wilmington.

We appreciate all the donors who sent money for the health kits. Each student received a large fluffy towel with his or her name embroidered on it. Wrapped inside the towel was a gallon baggie with a bar of soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, deoderant, etc.

This is the only Christmas gift some of our students will receive, so thanks again.

One more time, your support of the work here is important.  Have I mentioned that before?
