To the editor:
We have faithfully taken care of the trust given to us to help families in our community to have a meaningful Christmas. We have coordinated the efforts of many organizations to that end. We anticipate that 2012 will be an even bigger year in terms of involvement of people in this "person to person" project.
We are therefore appealing to you, once again, now for your most generous support of the North Elba Community Christmas Fund. All our funds come from townspeople and organizations, and all of our funds are expended to help the people of the village of Lake Placid and the town of North Elba. There is no need to belabor the fact that food prices have increased; we are all faced with this daily. We anticipate that more families will need our help during this coming Christmas season. We hope that you or your organization will be able to increase your contribution over last year.
We are grateful to you for your continued support of this worthy project, and we hope we can count on your personal help.
We would appreciate your early response to this appeal so that we may do as much purchasing before hand as possible, taking advantage of sales and discounts.
Contributions may be sent to me: Denice Fredericks, treasurer, NECCF, 20 Birch Hill Lane, Lake Placid, NY 12946.
Treasurer, North Elba Community Christmas Fund
