December 12, SPRING CREEK SANTA COUNCIL ADOPTS 4 FAMILIES FOR CHRISTMAS - DEADLINE TO DONATE

The Spring Creek Santa Council has adopted four Louisa County families that are in need again this holiday season. The goal is to provide clothing, toys, and books for children, as well as food for Christmas dinner, any household items needed, and gift cards for groceries- but I need YOUR help! I have already started buying items online to get an early start on deals and ensure that everything is received in time with all the shipping delays. All you have to do is write a check to Stephanie Mitchell (I cannot cash checks that are written to Santa Council). Envelopes will be delivered to those with newspaper boxes this week so please be on the lookout. You can drop off the envelope in my newspaper box to 140 Villa Avenue or send a donation through PayPal to stephanie.hirtriter@gmail.com and note it is for the Santa Council. I know many have trouble finding my house. If you head to the clubhouse, instead of turning left into the clubhouse parking lot, turn right onto St. Andrews St and then take an immediate left onto Villa Ave. My house is the first house on the left. It is on the corner of Villa and Lakeview Ct. Many of the homes in the newer sections of Spring Creek do not have newspaper boxes and will not receive an envelope. If you need an envelope or want to reach out to me directly, please send me a message. Please have any monetary donations to Stephanie by December 12.



December 12, SANTA COUNCIL WRAPPING PARTY

The Santa Council Wrapping Party will be 1 PM on December 12. Please remember to bring your own scissors! The more people we have wrapping, the quicker it will go so we can get the gifts delivered that evening. Thank you for your generosity! Stephanie Mitchell
