Thank you Greene County for the support

To the Editor:

As Greene County Coordinator for the Generation' AngelWorx program, I would like to express my appreciation for this community's support of our first Build*A*Basket project.

I was thrilled by the overwhelming response to the is project. Thanks to the generosity of school children, scout troops, businesses and organizations, churches, families and individuals, 383 clients in our six-county service area received baskets over the Christmas holiday.

One basket recipient who called the Generations' office said the basket was the only Christmas she had received in six years and that getting a basket made this the best Christmas she has had in a long time.

Build*A*Basket really brought home the truth behind the old proverb It is better to give than to receive. Thanks so much for helping to make the holidays a little brighter for so many of the homebound elderly in your community.

AngelWorx is an active volunteer program in Greene County that serves our homebound citizens. For more information, please call 847-7360 or the Generations office 1-800-742-9002.
