Donations make holiday brighter

Charity starts at home, that is what my mom and dad taught me, and I am proud to say that in our little hometown of Ironton, there are a lot of people with great big hearts that follow that same rule.

I am the program director of the BCMH (Bureau of Medical Handicap Children) program from the Ironton city health department and I have children on this program who are being raised by their grandparents, guardians and/or some other member of the family.

These people are usually on a fixed income and the medical handicap bills sometimes take a toll on the household budget. This Christmas some wonderful people pitched in and made Christmas much brighter for some of my families.

I would like to thank these people publicly: Trish Damron, all the employees of workforce development, Mike Brown of Giovanni’s Pizza in Ironton, Sally Inglis of Purse and Things, Brent and Lou Plyes of Lou’s Style Shop, the employees of Ironton City Health Department and Randy and Kathy Kelley of BWC Trucking.

Thank you one and all for your support and kindness to make Christmas for my families of the BCMH program a happy time of year.

May God bless you and your family this year.
