NFF: Fund takes sting out of holidays

 

SUNBURY –  Alice and Thomas Fetzer, ofMilton, are two of the nicest people you’ll ever hope to meet. Or help. They have lived in the same house together for 53 years — a house, Mrs. Fetzer concedes, that is becoming increasingly in need of attention.

 

Unfortunately, they are no longer able to keep up with the repairs as they once did. She is 88, and her husband is 91.

 

She acknowledged times are tough and that the holiday season always makes things a little harder.

They asked to be part of the Needy Family Fund “to help take some of the sting out” of the holiday season. For one thing, they will be able to pick up some items they can give to their grandchildren as Christmas gifts. For another, the donated food items will help provide some substance to holiday meals.

 

Both worked for a long time and are retired, she from Tiny Tots and he from Paul Stine Chevrolet. They may not have the strength and endurance they once did, but they have each other and they have their health, and for that, they are grateful. They are also grateful for help from The Needy Fund.  Mrs. Fetzer wishes everyone a very happy holiday.

 

Each year, The Daily Item, the Salvation Army of Milton and Sunbury, Susquehanna Bank and the radio stations of Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation team up to raise money for families in need. The Salvation Army distributes toys, food, clothing, and gifts to eligible families. You are asked to please consider a generous contribution to the Needy Family Fund. Donations can be dropped off at any branch of the Susquehanna Bank. More details are posted at www.wkok.com.  (The Daily Item)
