Many helped make CMO giveaway a success

We at the Community Mission Outreach of Chesapeake wish to thank the many groups who assisted with our 34th annual Christmas basket giveaway on Dec. 20.

God blessed us with enough food and workers that we were able to give away almost 500 food baskets.

Each basket had ham or turkey, milk, a fruit basket, potatoes, onions, stuffing, flour, bread, eggs, fruit cocktail, baked beans, Jello, cake mix, cake icing, cereal, noodles, a bag of apples and shredded cheese. The CMO was also blessed with new toys donated from various organizations, churches and individuals.

Toys for Tots, Amanda Cooper from St. Mary’s Hospital, 34 Chesapeake High School National Honor Society and Beta Club students, Fred Denny from Kroger, Facing Hunger Food Bank, Lawrence County Commissioner Freddie Hayes Jr. for toys, Romeo’s Pizza for toys, Rudy’s Pizza for toys, Chesapeake CVS for toys, Proctorville Dollar General for toys, as well as numerous community volunteers, made this day a tremendous success.
