Thanks to you, 500 kids had a merry Christmas

Happy New Year! With God allowing us to live among some very kindhearted folks, we feel our Ozark County Toy Drive of 2017 was a success. I’m always amazed how many people are willing to give money and time, work and effort to make our toy give-away a joy-filled time of year.

This is all made successful because of individuals, churches, clubs, businesses and folks, including those who live out of the area, who want Ozark County kids to have some gifts to open on Christmas morning. We reached a little over 500 kids this year. Mercy! The need seems greater each year. 

As you Ozark County friends continue to bless us with love and support, we will try to make a difference and be ready again in 2018. 

However your help was offered, it was sincerely appreciated. Thank you, thank you! May God bless you for your help and support. Many, many thanks.
