Set-up Day

17 Dec

Today was our most important preparation day for the big Christmas distribution.  All of the toys and clothes to be distributed this coming Tuesday were unloaded from storage and into the Kermit gym.  We had literally dozens of volunteers there to help out with this major operation.  A big empty gymnasium was transformed into a warehouse of Christmas goodness!

Among the many people and organizations who pitched in in various ways throughout the day are:

the Town of Kermit

Chesapeake Energy

students from Tug Valley High School

students from Regis University in Denver, Colorado

ABLE Families

and many volunteers, many local and some who came from several hours’ drive away. 

Our profound thanks to all for all the help today! 

More preparation happens Monday, then Tuesday is the big distribution day.  Here are some photos I snapped as the day progressed.
