Helping to help others
To the Journal editor:
The Negaunee St. Vincent de Paul food bank would like to thank the many organizations and individuals for their generous donations used in the preparation and distribution of Christmas baskets for families in the Negaunee and Palmer areas. We could not have done this without your assistance.
