“Sharing at Christmas” begins to receive donations

By New Albany Gazette

The 2008 “Sharing at Christmas Fund” is now underway, with the goal to once again reach $25,000 in donations.

The New Albany Gazette was open on Saturday, Nov. 8, 2008, to take applications from those in need of help this year. While the Gazette will not be taking any more applications at its office, applications will be available at city and county schools, as well as churches in Union County, for those unable to sign up on Saturday. Unlike last year, we will not take applications over the phone.

When the applications are collected, approximately 250 Union County families, depending on contributions, will be selected for help this year.

Monetary donations, as well as toy donations, are now welcome at the Gazette.
